Was it in both names?

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

If it was in both your names at the time of your divorce, that fact will remain on both credit reports for a total of 7 years as required under the fair credit reporting act, which is a federal law. 

Get copies of all 3 credit reports and go over them carefully.  You can do this via annualreport.com.  Joint accounts remain for 7 years and there is no removing them.  But do dispute any accounts you know are not yours.  The errors on credit reports are usually what hurts your score.  Check your reports annually to make sure all accounts are correct.

It used to be that consumers had to pay for their credit reports, so with the free reports available, there is no excuse not to keep tabs on our records.
