I have large unsecured debts in the UK as a result of a divorce there and now live here in the USA. I have no assets in either the UK or the USA, but do have a job with a salary – I am now married to the US Citizen – we are in rented accommodation. I entered into a lump sum IVA just before I left the UK which was approved. However I am now needing a varaition order as the HMRC has made a claim.
If the variation order fails, I am considering applying to go bankrupt in the UK. I have read your excellent comment on how to go about this, but want to know if my US Salary will be called upon for 12 months to make payments or whether they will simply write off everything and make me bankrupt in the UK and wash their hands of me? Can you offer any advice?
