Query re partner who was bankrupt

January 13th, 2009 by Questions

I am dating someone who has been Bankrupt once before and they want to take our relationship to the next step and we have discussed marriage. I have excellent credit. How could this persons previous bankrupcy affect me and my credit rating?

It should not have any impact on your credit rating. What you may find though is if you are applying for a mortgage or other joint debt, your partner’s credit history will impact the approval process and the interest rates you may be charged on the new debt.
