I assume you will be living together but your husband income will only be assessed to ensure you both pay a fair share of household expenditure.

I would advise him to keep a seperate bank account from you to try and maintain a healthy credit record.

Discharged today the 8th feb 2012. View is much brighter now.
Continuing to rebuild our credit worthiness.

If there are no financial links between you it should not affect his credit file. Your IVA should not be affected unless there is a material change in circumstances but you should advise your IP anyway of the change in name.

Are you living with your partner now - and is there likely to be any change in your situation when you are married?
