First, your spouse needs a Social Security number, since that is one of the keys in the credit program.  Then said spouse may start with a secured credit card, and that topic is covered very well in the articles here.  After that, it takes time, careful money handling and patience to build a credit score.  I suggest you and spouse review the articles here to better understand credit and take advantage of the interactive tools here forthe helpful practice.
