Anybody who has built a life together over the last 20 years deserves half. My wife and I split after 10 years, and I felt she was rightfully entitled to half. Oh yes, I have not won the lotto YET! Powerball is 171 million. In the dvent, I hit the BIG one Mrs. H would be entitled to her 30% here in Texas for the kids. Its only fair.

    I agree 100%, she deserves half.



    I wouldn't even question that. As a matter of fact I told my wife to tell me immediately after we win if she should me right away. My wife could have half and 100% of everything that we own...



    Not as if we would be dirt poor....



    What would bother me if they got married AFTER winning the money...



    Now to check my tickets...

      That is just it though, she threw him out because he was broke. Jesus, where is the justice? Take him back for 3 days and then divorce him. Think people. Listen to what is written. I hope the judge pays better attention. "Threw him out because he was broke." For better or worse. Marriage contract is broken before winfall. Get it yet.

        That was media speculation. In part it was true but not the sole nor strongest reason Juan and Iris agreed to MUTUALLY separate. I won't go into detail. Legally marriage is not broken until you divorce. Some people are really exagerrating on here. Iris is just like me and any other mother in this world, she wants to financially secure her daughter and her grandbaby. If I was in her situation and my husband won the lottery and I knew he would be spending big time like I know Juan will I would do everything I can to secure a descent amount for my children. If that is wrong then lets let God judge her  and not take it into our own hands to misinterpret the whole situation.

        By the way im not a lawyer of Iris. Im blood related to Juan but Iris is a very close friend. And for the person who asked about how Katty is doing she is fine and in great spirits shes taking a pause from school  to focus on her pregnancy and the good fortune that has surrounded them recently and she knows the divorce will be good for both of her parents.

          The idea of marriage was broken long before, wasn't it? Sounds like it was a sad situation all around.

          We don't exagerrate, we pontificate on this bulletin board.

            The article said, "A source said lottery officials were served papers in connection with the divorce filing. Lottery officials wouldn't comment on whether the divorce action would bar them from making the payout."

            I thought he was getting around $80 million. Now it has drastically dropped to $60 million?

            Anyway, what does the divorce have to do with lottery officials making the payout? Why were they served papers in connection with the divorce filing? Someone please explain. I'm no lawyer, but the ticket was bought entirely by Juan, and Juan alone if I'm not mistaken. Shouldn't Juan get the money no problem?

            Btw, I feel his wife should get some money since they are not divorced yet. It doesn't matter if she was a b*tch.

              The woman is just trying to screw his money. If he was the kind of guy who would spend all he got he wouldnt put just 100K in his doughters bank account. 60 milion is way less then the jackpot was advertised, if the government keeps scruing witht the lottery no one will play anymore.

                I don't think she is trying to screw him, it's just that if her lawyer had not serve the lottery with papers and Juan had gotten the money he could have easily did away with a lot of the money and that is what the lawyer wanted to stop. In most states the LAW is, if you are married you are entitled and being that Juan and Iris was married for 20 years and had not gotten a divorce yet, she is entitled. You know a lot of people be married  for a very long time and in that time period get fed up. Now me personally I think, if this has been going on for a long time she should have been left him but she had here reasons for staying now she see the opportunity to get out and make a life for her and her daughter a little easier.

                I think if as the lady say Isis wanted Juan to give here 5million and 3million for the daughter, then he is the stupid one what is 8million to your wife and daughter compared to giving up 30million. (now the money is on hold and the lawyer has to be paid-He is not using his head-he is the greedy one).

                Iris don't have to be a whore or a b*tch, by law she is entitled. IF THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT JUAN WOULD WANT HIS TOO AND HE WOULD BE ENTITLED.

                Some people think its right and some think its wrong but IT'S THE LAW THAT COUNT.

                Oh and by the way I hear and I don't know how true it is but in the state of New York if you are in the process of getting a divorce it is against the law to bad mouth your spouse in the public eye.( it happen to this model who was married to this billionare and she lost custody of her twin girls).
