Seeking expert testimony is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Dear friend,

I believe that I can help.

If you have separate financial accounts, including credit cards or debit cards, and they are not tied to your bank account, then you are not responsible for your husband's debts. Your credit score is based solely on your own financial history and not his.

Thus, any debts your husband has accrued affect only his credit report and only he is responsible for paying back those debts.

I wish you great success.

Warm regards,
