    Error on credit report 13th Sep 17 at 9:44 PM
    Today I have just had my bankruptcy order approved, and I have just checked my credit report with experian and there are 1 active account and 2 defulted accounts in my wife's name. How would I get these removed as these debts are not even in my name or joint debts?
