630 is not bad for only 2 years post bankruptcy there is rlelay not anymore you can do to improve your score You are right to be concerned as to how your credit will affect him it will not affect him directly, it may however affect him indirectly.If you were to let your credit slide again if you have joint accounts his credit will be negativly affected. If you continue to have bad credit in the future, will you expect him to shoulder all of the credit responsibilities will he have to put the cars and the house and all the cards in his name because you don't qualify? This will drastically bring his score down this is why it is important for you to use credit responsibly from now on.I recomend not opening joint credit in forms of credit cards (not even authorized users, because in some cases authorized users can be held responsible for bad debts) this way you have yours and he has his and you are both covered. The only debt you should share is a mortgage when you are ready. In a few years if you need a newer car your credit should be good enough to buy one without his name if you keep maintaining what you are doing.Also, just because your student loans are not due, does not mean you shouldn't be paying them if you pay them down now, it is less to pay later you say you are saving, you should be paying down debt 1st. Cut what you are saving in half and pay half on the debt and half into savings this way when the debt comes due you will have less to pay and therefor you will owe less in interest.

You’re just about right but what about the last one you posted not long ago that was slightly different? I believe you were right the first time.

naturally like your web site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I will certainly come back again.
