Anyways, I won't get into the details, but I tried increasing my fee to the max (.00098 BTC per trans) so getting confirmed would be easier I think.

I know a fair bit about Bitcoin and this has never happened to me. I have $500 in limbo. I've repaired my MultiBit wallet about 10 times already and it currently is locking me out of my money. Very frustrating.

Look for "fee per byte" in the blockchain links you provided. Now compare to https://bitcoinfees.21.co/. Bitcoin fee market changes drastically, especially recently with the surge in price. It's a good idea to check the bitcoinfees.21.co for how much I should actually use depending on my priority.


Let me know how tricky this is and see if it works. It seems Multibit sets this fee too low and you cannot change it. The only way to avoid it is to send multiple transactions of a lower amount
