          Learn the law- He can and most likely will  ask for joint or primary custody  of the kids to prevent any child support. Who's to say the courts wont allow that. Secondly just because the law "allows the right to half" doesnt mean the judge will rule that way. This is specifically for the state of Indiana. Maybe she runs up the bills and caused debts, maybe she is not the angelic mother...

          If this lady can't learn to stand up and support herself...then I personally don't see why she "deserves" to mooch off his fair winning. None of us here know them so speculate til dooms day the fact is...They are headed for divorce and the judge will make the decision not any of us.

          Based upon what we know of how this weasel tried hiding his winnings from his ex, with no indication he wanted to morally or financially support his

          young children, and only then tries to convince ex for a divorce.........he's going to be on the losing end of the stick.

          He made his bed, now hes got to sleep in it, along the greedy lawyers. In the court of public opinion hes already lost...........the legal court

          decision will soon follow.   Smash

            Now that there is a suggestion of the most stupidest order!  Have you not followed the cases of husbands who have offed their wives? Illinois former police officer in prison!  Only mothers who kill their kids seem to get off Scott free (Casey Anthony). I would have just told her and then came to an amiable decision for a divorce settlement.  I know the smart thing would have been to get the divorce finalized BEFORE he even won, but relationships are tricky deals and him coming clean would have been the better option especially since young children are involved.  Maybe the courts would have understood his move if it were he that had custody of the kids and the woman was living irresponsibly.  But trying to cut off a woman who is raising your kids....man even I wouldn't stoop that low to try to cut her off from all the winnings.

            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

              In addition to being very dangerous, because after all you never know what people will do, it is very illegal. Concealment. 

              I don't know how easy it would have been, but if he got caught, he could lose everything. In the end this was the best thing to do. He should either never have gotten married or he should have divorced her right away. On the plus side, if the tables were turned and she won, he would be in the same position as her looking at collecting millions of dollars.

              Like everything else, its illegal if you get caught. ;) You ever drive over the speed limit?  Roll through a stop sign? 

              Sometimes people are not financially able to get a divorce and decide to just separate and move on with their lives.  I have seen it several times.  That might be the case here, we don't know.  If they have been separated for a while, she might not be entitled to half his winnings. 

              His best bet now would be to consult an attorney and settle out of court and give her an amount that would be more than she would get if they go to court and the judge awards her half minus the attorneys fees.

                I think a reasonably sane guy would offer her 60% of the 15 Mill  to make the divorce and the mess to all go away... if she said no, then go chat with nasty evil pr*ck of an atty.....after all, why cause more stress ??  Unless you enjoy the drama and headaches  Poke

                  She probably went on television to let other prospective still married winners (male or female), not to deceive others.  Karma and doing until others as..... -- certainly was not in the man's frame of mind.  What decent, moral man ignores his kids -- should have thought about that before making them, sir.

                  The audacity to ask his wife for a speedy divorce: what was she supposed to say, "why, yes, dear -- anything you want, dear?"  Yeah, perhaps, the 1950s -- sir, this is 2012, not your great-grandmother's generation.

                            Hey Simba,

                             

                            Brilliant solution. If the situation was reversed, you'd be the one wearing those concrete shoes on your way to the bottom of a deep river.     Thinking of...

                            Any though's on that scenario?

                            Equal sex rights and all that stuff you know.....

                              60%!?!?  NO EFFING WAY!  See you in court.

                              I'd offer her 40% with no child support or alimony, me 50%, kids 5% each, plus, I would pay for all of their schooling.

                              Thats $6,360,000 for her, $7,950,000 for me and $795,000 for each kid.
