Considerations in determining creditworthiness.
A creditor shall consider the combined income of both spouses for the purpose of extending credit to a married couple and shall not exclude the income of either without just cause. The creditor shall determine the creditworthiness of the married couple upon a reasonable evaluation of the past, present and foreseeable economic circumstances of both spouses.
A request for the signatures of both parties to a marriage for the purpose of creating a valid lien or passing clear title, waiving inchoate rights to property or assigning earnings, does not constitute credit discrimination.
An inquiry of marital status does not constitute discrimination for the purposes of this chapter if such inquiry is for the purpose of ascertaining the creditors rights and remedies applicable to the particular extension of credit, and not to discriminate in a determination of creditworthiness.
Consideration or application of state property laws directly or indirectly affecting creditworthiness does not constitute discrimination for the purposes of this chapter.
