Free Credit Report

A free credit report can be obtained yearly from the government approved site found at Annualcreditreport.com. The annual free report contains the information provided to all three credit reporting agencies.

Clients should never try to obtain their spouse's credit report or FICO score without their spouse's express permission. Without permission, a person can risk violating the identity theft statutes. The information can be easily obtained in a divorce by agreement, or by requesting production of the credit report.
