debt to incomeMy husband and I are trying to get a VA loan to purchace our first house. The lender pulled our credit and said that he would have to be the only one on the note. (I have less than perfect credit) Since we live in New Mexico, which is a community property state, my debts count against him but my income doesn't help him. I don't understand why we can't claim my income as a supplemental income to his. Any suggestions?February 22 2011 - Albuquerque00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
