You did not indicate the credit card or how long the card had been open or if it was secured or unsecured.  For an unsecured card:  I would suggest you wait a minimum of 6 months before you make the request.   If you payments have not been timely, don't bother to ask.   You should review your credit report for any negative comments which could affect their decision.   If you access your account information online, you would probably see a link for  "Credit Increase" that you can select.  They'll probably want your current income amount.   Then, make the request.  It could result in a hard inquiry to your report; although some credit card companies will do a soft pull and use your payment/utilization as the primary factor.   You could telephone them to ask for a credit increase; the number should be on the back of your card.

Look on the Back of your Credit Card,  Call the 800 # for Customer Service and ask for a Credit Line Increase.  
 

Warning,   99.9% of the time requesting a CLI will result in a Hard Inquire and you are may not get the Increase.
