will taking my name off of my dad's credit card improve my credit if he has credit card debt?
My father put my name on his card as a joint holder when I was younger. He now has significant credit card debt that is negatively impacting my credit score. Is it possible to to take my name off these cards as I do not use them and am not a primary holder. Will this have a positive effect on my credit?
