Response to slackmaster (Reply #41)

43. If she isn't paying, and the card was in your name (married or not) you're kind of stuck.

In my case I took back my maiden name when I got divorced so there would be no confusion. However, you can't make her give up your last name unless it's in the divorce degree, which is what I insisted upon doing.

I'd bank on that one credit bureau that cleared you of the debt, to fix your record with the other two. Get it in writing or a written report showing it's cleared. Then keep on faxing, mailing and calling about it every time it comes up. Because most likely this, or some other debt will appear in the future.

But I would not believe a word the credit collectors said, as they often appear to be more interested in getting paid by hook or crook by anyone they can badger into paying, instead of the facts.
