If there are no joint accounts, just don't file her. Whether the credit reporting agencies will pick up her name is XXXXX XXXXX but can't be answered. If you are divorced in a concsnsual divorce prior to the filing, it will raise all sorts of questions, especially if assets are distributed. The questionable credit is less of a problem than the questions.
