How are joint debts affected?

If you have joint debts, then you are both liable for the whole amount of the joint debt, even if only one of you goes into an IVA. An IVA will only deal with your liability. Any joint party will remain responsible for repayment.

Where there is a possibility that an IVA may adversely affect another person, we will advise the affected party to take independent advice, although they could also apply for an IVA.
