Best time to seek additional credit?
My husband recently paid off some outstanding child support arrears (a relatively small amount that had been on his record for some time, unfortunately). He previously applied for a credit card and was denied because of the arrears, even though his credit rating is in the "good" category. We want to build his credit back up now that the arrears are paid, but are unsure if he needs to wait at all. He has no other debt. Thanks in advance for advice.
