If you are denied credit, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act requires that the creditor give you a notice that tells you the specific reason your application was rejected or the fact that you have the right to learn the reason if you ask within 60 days. If your credit application was due to information obtained from your credit report, the Fair Cedit Reporting Act requires the creditor to give you the name, address and phone number of the credit reporting agency that supplied the information. The credit reporting agency can tell you what is in your report but only the creditor can tell you why your applicaton was denied.

Why was I denied when applying for a credit card?

You may have insufficient credit. Not everyone is denied due to poor credit. You should receive a letter of rejection from the card you applied to stating why you were rejected. If you have not received this, it is within your rights to call the company and ask them to either send the letter or state why you were rejected. Once you know the reason you should review your credit report for errors. You can opt to apply to a department store credit card to help build credit. If you are denied that, you may choose a secured (down payment) credit card to help build or repair credit.

Why was you denied credit for not knowing your husband's ex-wife's address and birthday?

There is little likelihood that one was denied credit specifically for not knowing the address and birthdate of one's husband's ex-wife because alimony payments do not have to be disclosed when applying for credit and are usually only considered on the income side, not the expenses side (i.e., benefits the alimony payment receiver, does not negatively impact the alimony payment payer when either apply for credit). The above said, the bank may have wanted to conduct due diligence and contact the ex-wife in order to determine what, if any, alimony payments were being paid to her. When denied credit, you are required to receive a letter which identifies specifically why credit was not granted, and that letter must be sent within thirty (30) days of the denial decision. With that letter, you may see the specific reason(s) why credit was denied and you are entitled to get a copy of the credit report(s) that was (were) used to influence that decision.
