Have you tried contacting the company that is reporting the information?

I have contacted the three bureaus I'm aware of and have sent letters (as well as the "paid" info from the lenders), disputed information, etc. Some of them have had his info confused with mine (such as addresses I've never lived at, accounts that were never in my name, etc.). A number of people have suggested that my Ex may have used my address and information illegally. I have no idea how that could be proved.

If it is collections that your ex-husband has created, it maybe very difficult to permamently correct them. It may take until they age out.

Any idea how long that is?
