Another insult to injury about divorce

As if I haven't been put through enough, now my home and auto insurance are going up because divorced people are riskier to insure. WTF?? My husband shits on the family and so I forget how to drive and a tree is going to fall on my house? I'm so sick of this bullshit. Every time I turn around there's another slap in the face.

I'm sorry honey. It's not fair. But you knew that already.

I'm totally with you on this. I feel the same way about the tax structure. You are penalized for being single. And don't even get me started on the subject of traveling single.

My insurance went down for home & auto. Please have your agent explain the rise in your premiums. Go in person, if necessary.

I grilled them twice. It's because I had a married discount that was removed. I could see if I was a new customer and this was their price structure, but I've been a customer for 20 years! I also had to pay utility companies to have the bill changed to my name. The same bill I've paid for all these years, I had to PAY to keep paying it! Ugh!!! It just seems like the world wants to kick a chick when she's down. I feel like I'm a second class citizen in a million ways.

Get a quote from another insurance company.

Complain to your Public Service Commission about having to pay deposits to put the utilities in your name. I did and got my deposits waived.

Yeah, you're not being treated right. I was able to put all the utilities into my name and did not pay a deposit or any other kind of fee. Also, my rates for insurance (home & auto) went WAY down once the divorce is final, something I was told is normal.

My experience was that the utility companies went out of their way to help make the situation as seamless as possible. I was open with them all about why this was happening. I didn't have to pay the final bill for many of the utilities, they sent it to my ex because it was his name (or they wrote it off).
