You question isn't very clear but Credit accounts don't just go away if you changed your name back to a maiden name. 

First you need to determine if your name is on the account. It may have been set up as a joint account if it was opened while you were married.  Contact the Credit Card company, ask them to verify weather you are indeed on the account as the account holder or just a signer.  If it is a joint account you can ask them how to go about removing you from the account, Which might require paying off the balance and closing the account. If you are just a signer on the account they should be able to remove you right away.  Be sure to to ask them to update the info with the CRA's.  

Good luck
