Divorces can result in unpleasant events being reported on your credit history. Once on your credit report they will stay for 7 to 10 years (depending on the type). Since most accounts are closed during a divorce there is no option to keep the accounts open to more quickly age out late payments. Since cash is not an issue, short term you can acquire a secured credit card. It will probably have an annual fee but it is an easy way for you to restablish your credit. After a couple of years, it should be possible to switch to an unsecured account. Since you were turned down for credit, you are owed free a credit report. Debra
