your question isn't clear.

But, if you are asking if you should close an account that you are a signer on that actually belongs to someone else  (e.g. your parents account)  then i suggest that you open your new account before having them remove you from their account. 

If you are reffering to a joint account that you opened with someone else. Open the new account before closing the old one.

Realize that closing older accounts actually hurts your score.  Part of your score is based on the age of those open accounts. So it's always better to not close them unless you actually need to to inmprove your score over time.

Good Luck
