How Do We Get Our Daughters Debt Off Our Credit Report?

“Dear Steve,

I have a daughter who was caught stealing when she was 18. Somehow the amount due from the department store ended up on my credit report. Is there a way to transfer that to her credit report?”

I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before. The best place to go for advice would be to contact the credit bureau that is reporting the item.

I’m wondering if since your daughter was younger than 18 if you wound up responsible for the debt as her parent.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
