If these accounts are close to limit rather he pays them or not you might want to consider removing yourself and either getting your own or just continuing with your own credit cards.

As long as those cards stay good, you're fine. If he's really about to blow it, though, I'd probably remove myself from those accounts. What is he doing?

You need to jerk his chain and get him to straighten up.  What exactly is he doing to blow up his credit?

You don't know enough to say that!  There are times where maintaining credit is not the highest priority.

Re: husband getting ready to blow credit????

I remember blowing my credit and kept blowing it. Phone blowing up like crazy! I used to answer the phone yelling. Then bankruptcy...BOOM! Shutdown! It's amazing how absolutely powerful bankruptcy is. Absolute silence broke out. But with great power comes great devastation. Make sure he is sure it is the truly right time. Not advocating for BK by any means but it does serve a very powerful purpose. I never let my checks get garnished. I watched my mom nearly have a nervous breakdown when her checks were garnished when I was a little girl. My mom almost committed suicide. We were eating bags of potatoes and beens and weenies for weeks. So when they said those words to me, "we have the judgement and will garnish"...I jumped up and found a lawyer.

Very true.  The tone of the OP's post didn't lead me to believe that it was due to a hardship.  If so, I retract my statement.

Please tell us what he is about to do so we can give you more appropriate responses. "Blowing credit," can mean maxing out a $500 CC to one user on here & it can mean maxing out a $45,000 CC to another user on here.
