missgreekbee:  There was a similar situation a while ago, although not the same name.  I’ll see if I can find it.

I would actually be hesitant about taking on his name in your case.  It seems like it’s opening up way too much room for error.  Are you opposed to hyphanating?

She is probably in breach of their divorce agreement, so a letter from your FI’s lawyer should help get things cleared up.

Maybe you should consider both changing your last names to something totally new. 😛 (I’m not sure this is a serious suggestion or anything, just, I’ve known couples who did this.)

missgreekbee:  Include your middle name/initial whenever possible then!  Hopefully it won’t create any issues for you.

missgreekbee:  Jijitattoo:  We’ve actually considered changing both of our last names. Not something totally new, but when his family came from Poland they altered their name to sound less Polish (my ancestors did the same thing with out German name) and we thought about maybe just putting th e-sky back on the end. Is that an option for you?

When you say joint like they’re both responsible for payment? Or is one of them an authorized user/signer? Have him go into a WF location, show his ID and of course im sure they can locate the card with his SSN and fill out the form to remove himself. I believe she will have to sign the form. Im not familiar with joint CCs only with AU. Im guessing joint CCs no longer exist. Also even though its joint, there should be a primary owner. is it SO or his EX? 

Im just trying to figure out what can be done? You guys obviously cant close it because it has a balance!
