We are 2 years and 9 8 months into our IVA.
My husband has a serious mental health problem and last week he decided he could not cope with the money worries anymore. He says he is moving out and wants his own place. He will not be able to afford this. Obviously i want to work this out but just wondering what happens with IVA payments when a couple split and is there any way i can change or get an interest only mortgage to help me out?
IVA payments will remain in situ - however it is best that you discuss this with your IP so that theycan consider whether a reduction is possible to help resolve th situation slightly. You have come so far, it is a shame to see things go to this stage if they can help !

Hi Olivia.dg, sorry to read about your problems at the moment. you definitely do need to speak to your IP asap to look at the income and expenditure again. If your husband is moving out to another place (hopefully temporarily) the costs will increase and how will you manage the shortfall between you.
If you tihnk this is a temporary situation your IP may be able to get your payments suspended for a short term and add onto the end of your IVA. Or you could have your I&E revised to see what you can afford on your own (getting interest only mortgage would help with additional disposable income).
Either way I hope you get it sorted soon but it is only your IP who can actually help you practically moving forward.
Best wishes and keep us posted,
