If the credit card is in your name, the debt on the account is yours, not the additional card holders. As such the amount cannot be included in an IVA in the additional cardholder's name. As you are linked financially by the card your details might appear on his credit files and vice versa and your credit score may be affected by his IVA.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
