How do I protect my credit when going through divorce in Florida?
I always suggest that people look up their credit report. You can get a free credit report at Annual Credit Report. That way you can see which debts are in your name. And you want to make sure that the debts that are in your name are being paid, because even if in your marriage your husband or your wife has paid one of the debts, if it is in your name and they stop paying it, it will negatively affect your credit. You want to pay careful attention to your credit’s status. Furthermore, if there is a credit card in both of your names, contact the lender to close the account and prevent further use of the credit card. Even if your spouse uses the credit, you both will be responsible to the credit card company and this cannot be changed in a divorce.
