You know, I just figured out that my ex is a majorly contributing cause to my crap credit score. Every time I get it straightened out and building, he does something to make me need a lawyer, or in this case, multiple lawyers, who need to get paid. A LOT.
Then bills get paid late, and since house payments etc prioritize over other stuff, I end up with stupid crap in collections... which reflects on me for years afterward, even after the bill is paid.
I literally just had the crap from my early 20s during our first massive battle disappear from my record, and now I'm sitting here looking at horse trailers to move both horses and household crap across the country, and dismally reading that most places won't lend to you unless you're above the 700 credit score mark.
Well ****, looks like that's just never going to happen until my DD turns 18...she's ten now, and even if I make the larger end of the payscale for my major (assuming I finally pass calc and get my degree), it takes 7 years for garbage to disappear from my record.
It's really funny how some mistakes of youth can keep dragging you down over and over and over....I swear, I wish there was a way to keep kids from reproducing until they are at least mid twenties and meet someone reasonable...I think I'll keel over dead if my daughter makes the same mistake (NEVER EVER EVER date someone just because they look good!!!) that I did =/
