Re: Bank Accounts
think of it this way:
why would a business (the bank) risk their money by allowing you to open an account? While you can argue your wife is the one writing bad checks, what the banks see is that somebody is writing bad checks on your account. They do not know who it was, just that it is on your account.
About all you can do is keep shopping around to try to find a bank that will allow you to open an account. I understand Woodforest Bank, found inside the Walmarts, allows many people that wouldn't otherwise be able to open an account to open an account with them.
You need to close the account your wife is writing the bad checks on
