How long does it take my credit score to change if I take my name off another's credit card account?
I recently took my name off of a credit card I shared with my sister. We had about a 40-50% usage rate, and so it was negatively affecting my score. When will my credit score reflect this change, and will it still be affected if I had my name under the card for a few years?

Thanks for your help.
