GW letters on Joint Account

If I reach out to a creditor regarding GW adjustments on an account that is in both mine and spouses name, if they were to agree would they automatically update both of our reports or would GW letters need to be sent for each of us? Like could the same report show a 30 days late on mine and not on his?

IMO you would send a joint GW letter, in other words one letter with both of your names on it.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Just as whether a decision to grant a good-will deletion is discretionary, whether or not they would take it upon themselves to extend the deletion to the separate reporting made to the joint account holder's credit file would be discretionary.

It would not be "automatic."

 

I would send a request signed by both that reqests removal from both files.
