Go to the bank and ask to have your name removed from the account. The other account holders should go with you. * I don't recommend this unless you are extremely confident of the other account holders' financial viability and/or general upright-ness, as if any or all of them end up defaulting or otherwise losing the account and/or causing a debt, you will be hunted down as a responsible party by any collection entity that should end up involved, and any credit damage that this might (would) cause will be reflected in your credit rating, possibly without you even having been contacted. I suggest that you go to the bank with the other account holder(s) and close out the account and have them open a new account at the same time.
