Does Your Spouse’s Credit Score Affect Your Credit Score?

Question

Once divorce, does my ex-husband’s credit score get better since the bad debt was under my name?

My Response

No, credit scores and marriage are not tied together. If you are getting a loan together, they may take both credit scores into account, but that doesn’t mean your actual credit score is affected by your spouses credit.
