Re: Closing Accounts with AU

I do not know about the AU item, however, before you close it you should get a couple of cards only in your wife's name. Then her file will start to build. You also should have one or two cards only in your name. Then, place some major banking cards in your joint names. Both of your reports need to show individual credit and joint credit trade lines. Good Luck
