My wifes felony record is extensive. Charges include Prostitution (1), felony possession of both crack (1), cocaine (2), violation of probation (2) and DUI, over a 20 yr span. She is currently serving 5 yrs probation her recent probation violation and the crack conviction of 1 yr ago.. As a result of her problems, her credit is trashed. Her ability to find a job is grim to say the least because of her record and My credit is not great.
We have been married four years and I was recently laid off by my employer. Even though I am highly qualified in my field and have excellent references, I am having a problem securing employment which is unusual. It is imperative that I retain employment, especially in my field because it is all I know and flipping burgers will not get the bills paid. I did a credit check and DID find one of her bad debts on my rpt.
Very simply, how could her bad credit and criminal record effect me as an individual and spouse? Could my employment search and credit standing be adversely affected?
