Updating credit report

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

Nothing to worry about.  your credit reports will update automatically as you update your name with existing and new creditors who provide th einformation to the bureaus. 

It might take a few weeks or even a few months for that matter but will happen automatically.

Thanks for asking and congratulations and best wishes for many years to come. :-)  (I'm going on 17 years with my best friend and girlfriend of 21 years).

Blessings,

Joe
