we just found out my hubby got a new job. We have to move asap to Kansas City. We currently live in Upper Mich. Anyway, now I am so stressed because every place including private rental homes is checking credit reports. I personally can understand apt complexes but private homes. WE will never pass the credit check. Our credit is awful, his has a bk that is just discharged and mine although I am working on it with two new credit cards from Providian(visa gold and their mc) It still sucks. Most of this is because I got a divorce and had some pregnancy complications and Jim's jobs pay sucked but we worked our asses off but couldn't make ends meet. Now he is going to be making 71k a year at his new job, we make w/o overtime now 23k a year with o/t about 35k and we need to find a place to live. We will be out of debt in no time making this money because we don't have a lot of debt but when you don't make much you do everything just to meet your basic needs. Help, what should we do? We also have 2 very young children ages 2 1/2 and 17 month. So we need safe, family neighborhood housing.
