Closing - Joint credit cards


#1

Okay I have several joint credit cards with my spouse. Sinvce our separation I have asked to have the updated cards. My spouse has refused to give them to me or tells me they are lost. everytime I try to get them replaced she reports them stolen. I have been paying all the bills. Do I have a right to close the Joint accounts where I am either Primary or Secondary on the account? Without my cosigning she will most likely have trouble acquiring here own credit card. I have no separation agreement in place at this time.

You will need to contact the credit card companies directly and let them know you would like to close the account. Whether you can do so unilaterally will depend upon the company and how you have the account set up.
