CLOSE ACCOUNT OR REMOVE AS AUTHORIZED USER?
I am an authorized user on my fathers credit card. He is going to file for BK soon. I did as well a few months ago, and slowly I am rebuilding my credit. Should I have him remove me as an authorized user on his account or should I pay it off and have him close the account altogether? What should I do to have the least impact on my score?
Thanks for the help!

If it was me, would make sure the account get paid off and then close it.
