The Answer

Arnold,

That really is a question for the credit card company, as to if they would transfer the debt; and odds are they are not going to do this.

If you cannot afford to repay your friend each month, then how would you pay the debt even if it was in just your name?

Unfortunately you are in a bit of a sticky situation. Other than taking out a credit card or loan of your own, and transferring the balance over or paying it off, there is little you can do.

How much are we talking here? Do you have any other debts? Why are you struggling to repay the account to your friend?

Get back to me and let’s look closer at this and what other options you may have.

Regards,

Jon
