Credit may be in your husbands name.

Depending on which state you live in, If all your credit is in your husbands name, then the credit is on his report. You should have this info on your credit report if you have joint accounts.  Check with your creditors and make sure that your name is on the accounts as a responsible party and not just a signer on the accounts.  Loans and mortgages should also be joint accounts. Make some phone calls to the creditors and see how you are listed. Your husband may have to intervine and have you added to the accounts. 

Good Luck
