No, this is not possible. Legally, you have to enter a binding contract with a credit company, and even with a cosigner, no one under the age of 18 can legally enter into a contract. If you are emancipated, then you are considered a legal adult, and then that would be a different story. Other than that, this is not possible. -Jesse

Can you build credit if your guardian adds your name to their credit card?

Probably not because the credit would still be in your name. The guardian would only be able to use the card, but wouldn't be responsible for the charges. The only way to build credit is if the CREDIT, ie the responsibility is in their name.AnswerIf you are referring to being an authorized user of an account, it would not help you to establish a personal credit history. If you mean becoming a joint account holder with the other person then you would be able to establish your own credit history. Keep in mind, as a joint account holder you could be responsible for the entire debt if the other person does not pay their share,(and vice-versa).

How do you get your name off a credit card that you cosigned for 2 years ago if you cannot find the person you cosigned for?

Contact the credit card company and explain your circumstances. Whatever the problem, you are 100% responsible for the debt that person has incurred. Cancel their credit card (should have been done immediately) and pay off their debt! If you are fortunate enough to have your own credit cards after all this and have a good credit rating and you are paying off this person's debt then your credit rating will not be altered in any way. DON'T COSIGN FOR ANYONE! Marcy

I have bad credit how can I qualify for a credit card?

If you cosigned for a credit card and the person defaulted on it and you were never notified of the default can you fight this on your credit report?

You can try. It probably won't work. Basically lenders assume that if you cosign for something, you understand the risk. They don't care if the primary person forgot to notify you that he/she was having trouble. It's not fair, but it will make you think hard before you cosign for someone again. Be very careful.
