I need to improve my score but it seems hopeless. I once had good credit an then got divorced. My score is between 550 and 575 between the 3, What can I do to improve it?

Get your credit card balances down to 35% utilization. FICO likes this. But, they like it even more if your credit card balance are between 1% and 9% utilization.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!! You are well within the range for 600 scores.

Best,

Cecilia

Regarding your statement: 
"Now I am testing another theory which is the effects of inquiries and new accounts on a fico score both the short and long term effects."
 
All I can say is be careful, my score dived from 671 in Feb to 654 in June because there were 3 inquiries and one new account opened in that period of time.
