It depends on how bad the credit of the other spouse is. If their credit isn't at least decent, getting a joint loan will be based upon the FICO scores of both parties.

How can a spouse stop another spouse from using one's identity?

I would contact the credit bureaus and file a fraud alert to each of spouse credit report. (IF you file fraud alert with experian or equifax etc, they will add the alerts to all 3 credit reports). The only thing you can't do is file a police report since your spouse is protected from being criminally charged since you are legally married to your spouse and you are required to monitor your identity if your spouse steals it. Certain states do allow spouses to file criminal charges so please contact your Attorney General about possibility of filing criminal charges. 95% of the time the AG will not bother filing charges since you are legally married to your spouse and you are obligated to prevent him from using your identity to establish credit without your consent. Source: I Filed for divorce and tried to file criminal charges against my wife for using my identity to get credit cards but she obtained the credit cards while being married and not being separated which I end up taking the loss for it. You guys need to study Spouse Protection and how it works if your spouse steals your identity. This is why you want to monitor your credit reports no matter how much you trust your spouse. If the identity theft took place during a legal separation or after filing for divorce then you can file a police report and block the inquiries and credit accounts on your credit report and also being able to press criminal charges against your spouse. Reminder: Please put that fraud alert on all credit reports ASAP to stop the damage of your spouse is going to do to your credit if your spouse is living with you at this moment.
