Re: co-signer on ex's student loan

When you cosigned this loan you became one of the borrowers. Debt taken by one party or the other in a divorce is still owed by both parties. The lender wasn't part of the divorce.


It's unfortunate that his actions have affected your credit negatively, but I doubt you'll have much success in removing what is valid information on a valid debt. Sorry.....maybe someone else will have a different opinion.


Unfortunately jazzzy is correct. Only thing you could do would be to pay them off in full and then pursue your ex for payment... or take your ex back to court and request that the ex refinances the loan. Otherwise it will be dragging your scores down forever.
