Hi, it’s me, Sara Louise.
You know me and you know my story. And after years of being stuck in this nightmare, I’m doing something I never thought I’d do; I’m asking for help.
Being married to my ex is costing me in many different ways, some emotional, some financial.
Besides the pain of the whole ‘bigamy’ thing, I now have to file my taxes in a status that costs a higher rate and because of that status, I’m not able to get insurance assistance from the Affordable Care Act.
SIDEBAR: So this was fun. The kind people at the healthcare dot gov told me to ask a tax professional if I could get an exemption and be considered ‘head of household’ to get assistance. But the tax professional told me that I couldn’t qualify as head of household because I didn’t have any dependents and was childless. OUCH.
On top of this, there are loads of other little fun-filled ways I’m being s to the crewed over financially by him (you don’t even want to see Fifty’s medical bills).
Bottom line, I’m stuck in this expensive loop of hell all because my ex did what he did and is still doing it. I have to get a divorce.
But, it turns out getting divorced is crazy expensive, especially when you have to track down the other party in another country. This is where you and this blog post come in.
After asking loads of people for their advice and opinions, and having them promise this wasn’t too tacky, they all agreed that I should set up a GoFundMe here on the blog. I’m cringing that I’m doing this, but I simply cannot do this on my own. I have to cut the ties for both my mental and emotional well-being as well as my financial.
I understand that things are tight for everyone at the moment. And if you can’t give it, that is OK. You’ve always supported me, and I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know.
But if you can give, then please do. Please help me get a divorce.
