    How to remove an assoicate from credit report?

    I just got my credit report the other day and although I have closed all the accounts I had with my ex husband he is listed as my "associate" ie someone who I still have a financial relationship with. Does anyone know how I can remove him? I have a good credit rating (well no debt) but he doesnt and I dont want to be associated with him. Any help gratefully received!

    You need to submit a Notice of Disassociation to each of the credit reference agencies.

    Yes, the 30 day trial has nothing at all to do with any actions you want to carry out on your credit report.

    You need to contact each agency for any actions you want to carry out against your credit file. They dont automatically update each other.
