no-- they are just a second card holder (user). you can add someone without their signature-- therefore the place has no information on them so how could it help them. And beware --- they may not pay it back.

Under Florida law a spouse cannot be held liable for debt repayment if the debt was not jointly incurred. The issue concerning the second card holder will need to be taken up with the creditor. If the couple were still legally married at the time, the creditor will probably accept the spouse's right to use the account. In which case the account holder will be held liable for all charges pertaining to the account in question.

Maybe. If the "second" person is an actual account holder then he or she is liable for the debt.

Additionally, married persons living in community property states are generally liable for credit card debt and other debts incurred during the marriage even when only one spouse is the actual account holder.

Assuming the use and payment history is desirable and the account is not new, then yes. In fact, there have been reports of people "renting" their credit history out by putting people on as being authorized or second users, thereby giving them credit history and an account with positive payment status. While this is highly risky, it demonstrates that there can be benefits to being co-user of some accounts in certain circumstances.
