Disputing errors

I removed my daugter from my Chevron Visa and Wells Fargo Visa because they are close to limit and didnt want it to affect her credit well they are still reporting and I removed her from the accounts in the beginnings of October 2012. should she go ahead and dispute them anyway or just wait till they get removed by themselves?

it takes time but depending on how old the account and the limits is it could hurt her credit scores more by removing them.

 

if her credit scores are good she can get good cards with good limits which can offset some lower limit high utilization cards. Like if her credit score is good she can get a nice Amex with generous credit limit increases etc.

 

So few questions.

 

How old are your account, how new is she to credit, and her current credit limits would give a general idea if this is even worth it.

 

Experian has a policy that it will only remove Authorized users if it damages their reports and can be hard, although companies like CFPB can help remove it if they won't. Dispute it with ALL CRA's stating that it's a Authorized user account and since she's not liable for the debt she would like to request it off, if they refuse to delete it file a complaint to CFPB.

So total of $5600 + 2250 + 2500 = $10350 total credit limits  and is does she have balances on the other cards?

 

So if not she'll be at $3,900 / $10350    debt to credit ratio

 

Honestly that's not too bad at 37% personally I think they're doing more good than harm unless she's going to be on the market for a car or house in the near future, the best thing you can do for her is to pay off your cards as soon as possible.

that's fine, but remember like I said just dispute it with the CRA but only after it's been removed or sticks on. Experian probably won't delete, not sure about Equifax they're iffy. But Transunion is very good with removing things upon request (things in good standing)

 

If it doesn't fall off then dispute with CFPB and they'll remove it.
