Default Re: wife's bankruptcy and my credit score

I don't know why but my credit score dropped 70 points when my wife declared bankruptcy??? It seems like I am being punished for her separate finances.

Default Re: wife's bankruptcy and my credit score

I wish to inform you that you may seek your credit report. In this regard you may dispute credit record where an entry has been made which is not related to you. Bankruptcy may appear on your credit report only if there is a join debt by you and your spouse. In absence of joint debt you may contest any fall in your credit score.

If you are a co-signer with your wife for any debt your credit score will be affected adversely if she files for bankruptcy.
