Something isn't right.  If they were married for only two days then there will be divorced papers.  (proof)  If they were legally married there would be papers.  (proof)  If they were common law married, they would have proof.  With no proof, how on God's green Earth are you going to prove anything? 

 "But but but he slept with me!"

(I wouldn't admit that)

 "We made love in our favorite hotel room"

(freakin' tramp!  You had a favorite room?")

"We have kids together!"

(and he still didn't marry you, but you stuck around.  Idiot)

I'm not a lawyer....but if it's going to cost $500K to prove you were married, then....uhm...YOU WERENT MARRIED!!

A man had sex with a woman.  Why?  uhm...maybe because SHE PUT OUT!?

Don't mean to get all worked up...but COME ON!  She's a greedy b!tch and she'll probably sue him for making her look like one, next!

(I hate people like this)

No No

Don't cry over spilled milk.  Go milk another cow!!

    Regarding a Blind Trust, I can't say anything about Canadian law, but most states here (except Delaware I think) will not allow the winner to remain anonymous. Even the Trusts and LLCs that are formed will always list each member for the record. I'm not saying I agree at all with that, since I'd want to be completely anonymous. However, there are a lot of greedy creeps who would let their children go hungry. I read recently that a lot of unpaid child support has been collected from lottery winnings. 

    I also wonder why this ex-wife is being so harshly judged by this board. If the children were fathered by this man they were together for more than 2 days, legally or not. If he waited a year to make his claim (losing a lot of interest) because he wanted to hide his wealth, he obviously knew he'd be in for a fight. By the way, having sex with your ex isn't that uncommon.

    The problem with stories like this one is we weren't there, we don't know these people, so we only know what the media reports and from my experience, it's not always the whole story.  Anyway, if they're legally divorced she probably won't win, although if he won $30M it might be worth settling this mess.

          There is so much wrong with this whole picture but any time I hear an EX is going for anything I cringe. That to me is the purest form of greed. My EX won over 1million in a lawsuit and I don't even collect Child Support while I have custody. I don't want it and I have no complaints. I'm happy for her but it's not my money. Why would I go after her? What is an EX? Why do people think EX's owe them something? This is the same reason I don't believe in Alimony either. I think it's wrong. No offense to anyone collecting it as I do not know every one's individual cases. Unless a person is INCAPABLE of working then why should they benefit from another's prosperity, ANY PERSON, when there is no relationship? To me it's a prolonged punishment, a form of EX welfare that no one should have to endure. In fact I am willing to BET everything that I have that at least 30-50% collecting Alimony are doing better than the person paying the alimony. Yup, so in this case someone wins the Lotto and basically now they want some form of alimony. They don't want to work for it. Alimony should be done away with just like welfare has been downsized in many states, Alimony should also suffer the same fate. Regarding kids, men and women should alway pay child support if required to do so but again sometimes this abused as well. If my opinion 9k a month is abuse and wrong, NO CHILD needs that much. Even if it were a family of 4, do they need 9k a month? That is so wrong it's not even funny, again that is greed and does not serve the best interest of the children. I read somewhere that P Diddy pays something like 35k a month. I don't care how much his daddy makes, this is support for the child not support his EX's lifestyle. Tell me one child that needs that amount. I'm not a P Diddy fan but that is wrong for anyone. I know I'm opening a can of worms but this is all tied together. This women's request of 9k a month is beyond shamefull. It's adult support past a certain amount regardless of the parent's income and no matter how you try to justify I can prove otherwise. When people get greedy everyone loses, especially the kids, well almost everyone loses; the lawyers children will go to better schools after they collect their fees from this mess.

           

          NOTE: I don't know the particulars about this story. My comment is more generic but it may very well fit as I have read many stories like this on this board and it appears to have similiar characteristics.

            I see two points wrong in this whole concept: (1) To his favor, he played the lottery game and bought the ticket with (what appears to be) no fraud intended and (2) To his stupidity, he slept with her after he knew he won the money.  Both are losers and deserve whatever the courts punishment turns out to be.

            Cheers

              Seems to me that the children should be winners here!  Finally some support!  Men do have the audacity to come back to their weak, vulnerable exes.  If you dance to t he music, you have to pay the piper, baby!  Pay up and shut up.  Did you think it was free!?  Nothing is free.  It costs to marry, more to divorce, to have children, get burried...and the list goes on.  It costs to play the lottery and it certainly costs to W-I-N!Boxing

                In divorce cases, where the marriage has already been dissolved, but the court still retains jurisdiction over spousal and/or child support, any party, whether she is a spouse or a child may petition the court to modify the support order when there is a change in personal and/or financial circumstance.

                The amount of support generally depends on the capacity of the person giving the support and the needs of the person being supported.
                The lifestyle petitioner got accustomed to during the marriage is an important consideration.

                    LOLOLOLO.......isn't so.....and while we're on the subject, he should have known better. He should have aquired a "Mediator" to help settle some of the sticky issues that arise in Lieu of going to the Divorce Court, established a Trust  Fund for his children, and severed all ties w/her, to avoid this unnecessary ugly Court Battle....He's stupid....Now, she'll fight to "ring him like a wet cloth" thru her Attorneys and it serves him right.........LOLOLOLOLO

                    oh well.....and so this is christmas and what have we done.......for the near & the dear ones........

                        It's free, mylollipop, unless a man pays for it.  In which case it isn't free, but there's a name for the kind of woman who sells it.

                        Whether a man wins a lottery or not, he ought to make sure his kids are warm in the winter, have clothes on their backs, full bellies, and a father to the extent that's possible.  Winning the lottery doesn't change that.  Making sure they have more than that isn't even doing them a favor.

                        As for a woman he's divorced from, he owes her civility and the courtesy of not bad-mouthing her to the kids, which is the same as she owes him.  If she went to bed with him after they were divorced it just means they had a one night stand.  Same as she's probably had with other men and he's probably had with other women.  No hits, no runs, no errors.  You just try to get out after the morning coffee, but before things get complicated.  Or in the middle of the night, if they do.

                        Him winning the lottery doesn't change any of this.  He doesn't owe her, nor the kids, anything more than that simply because he won the lottery.
