I am an unwilling co-applicant on an ex-girlfriend's credit card. Can anyone recommend an attorney to help me get out of this situation?

What do you mean "unwilling"? Did she open it without your knowledge? If so, that is ID Theft. Go to and click on the IDT link. Follow the steps outlined there.

She used my information to obtain a credit card while we were together and I have no recollection of it. She now owes $18k (we split up 2 years after the card was opened in 2002). I've tried everything I can with the bank and with her (she wants me off the card, too - so no ill will on her part), but have been unsuccessful. The bank recommends getting an attorney and pursuing her. I just don't know where to begin to look.

Really, the only way you are going to get your name off it is to prove ID theft like Nascar stated above.

I've just opened the link (thanks!) and am looking into it. Thanks for your prompt replies. Any idea what kind of penalties she would face? I really don't want her to get into any real trouble over this.
