Love how the court can award things like that.
Maybe I should fax the CB my divorce decree and claim "its not mine" in my dispute or even "no longer liable for this account" ...Hmmm..... LOL
7 years is a long time to pay for cosigning.

Just like the subject says, my smart self decided to app for the AMEX green card knowing I have 18 inq on my EX report and just opened up 3 cards last month. Anyhow, it was instant and painless. DENIED!
Just for laughs and giggles, I decided to ring up the number listed in the backdoor thread. The stats given to me are as follows:
Too many recent accounts
Too many inquires
Length of time accounts established
Major derogatory (charge off last year) - this is my only baddie. Wife was awarded a vehicle.. wait, let me start over. My X wife was awarded a vehicle in our divorce proceedings and she decided not to pay it. Not much I can do right now.
AAoA = 3.1 years
1 Cap1 card opened for 18 months, paid on time
Barclays, Walmart and Amazon opened last month
Auto loan opened 3 months ago $23k balance
1 AU account for 5 years
Anyhow, back to the garden for 12 months or until I figure out how to get this CO off my report.
Wish you the VERY BEST... I've been there where you feel essentially helpless while someone vindictive and less responsible profoundly affects you.. Lost my house in 2006 to foreclosure after a 13yr relationship went bad... He refused to allow the house to be sold even thou it also meant affecting his credit, he didn't care and so it was foreclosed.. At the time it was the only negative thing ever on my credit report. Amex even shut down my Platinum simply because this showed up on my credit, even thou I had never been late with them.. Amex just recently took me back and I was able to "backdate" the member since date back to 1998 when I had opened the accounts.. Give it a good 6mths to a year and you'll be through it.. Time flys.. Good luck..

Yup! Those are my plans and intentions.... I'll sit on these GE cards and allow them to blossom along with my Barcalays and Cap card.
12 months inq free and aged revolvers sounds like a plan to me.

I have no idea about this, but if she was awarded does that mean you still had to pay?? seems like if she took possession of the vehicle due to a court proceeding.. she would pick up the tab as well.. right?? so therefore even if you cosigned.. it wasnt your responsibility as if u gave it to her it was a forceful action by law.. that is worth a dispute for sure.. at least IMO I thought there was a divorce type option not mine for disputing with bureaus, seems like i seen it before.
