I have been divorced almost three years now and my paypal account was in my ex husbands name, but it was my bank account and email. I can’t get his name off! I can’t open a new account as obviously my email and bank is on this one! It seems crazy I can’t just put it in my name! I keep getting messages and receipts sent to me, but to my ex’s name as it’s disturbing!
Its against paypal rules to use another persons paypal account and against those rules to add cards / bank accounts that are not in the account holders name and address.
That account does not belong to you so you would need to open an account in your own name and use another card with it.
The only way around it is to ask your ex if he will remove your info from his account for you and close said account.
You can't have a joint account if its a personal paypal account.
It can only be joint if its a business account.
A personal account has to be in one persons name only.
