Before you pay them ANYthing I would get an agreement in writing, signed.

They often will not remove it unless you negotiate for a pay-for-delete, which usually requires payment in full.

I have a ? to this, I guess I'm still a little confused,what happens if you want to settle the debt,the ca agrees to take the payment but doesn't agree to remove from your credit report? Does that ever happen? What do you do then?

True, it *is* only for effect. But, the CRAs have a bad habit of disregarding consumer disputes - especially "it's not my debt" disputes (which are often answered by the collector as "oh yes it is") so it is a good effect, IMO.

Ditto what Chrys said. Although having your letter notarized is just more for effect than anything. If you don't know a notary, I wouldn't go pay to do that.

Even while married, you both have separate credit reports. Joint accounts will be on both of your credit reports, while accounts that you take individually will only be on your credit report - not your spouse's (and vice versa).

If it is accurate, they do not have to delete it.
If it isn't, send a Notarized statement to the CRA (mail it) that you swear that it is not your debt along with a strongly worded letter that they remove it immediately or you shall investigate your legal remedies.
