    > This is the same reason I don't believe in Alimony either.

     

    This is not lottery related but is a humorous-but-true aside on alimony. Years ago, a radio/TV personality named Henry Morgan (was a regular on the old "What's My Line" show) was shocked when his wife was awarded a substantial alimony award ... part of which was to pay for the rent on a Manhattan apartment they both used to live in prior to their split. Morgan's approach was interesting. He didn't challenge the alimony award at all. Instead, one morning a few months later, his EX realized the alimony check was late. She attempted to call him at his apartment but the phone had been disconnected. She attempted to call him at his network but they said he'd just stopped showing up for work and no one knew where he was. Then the next week, he finally surfaced as a personality on CBC radio. He got much less than he made in the US ... but it was all his. And the Canadian courts would not honor the New York state alimony order.

     

    It makes me wonder whether a Canadian bank might be a safe haven for lottery winners with greedy EXs.

        Any court ordered alimony is not enforceable! Most states can't put you in jail for not paying alimony to the EX! But they can for child support and they should for that! It's just most men are afraid of the thought of that possibility of maybe going to jail for not paying the court ordered alimony, so they pay-up until they get wise or a better lawyer....lol

        Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

            What a brilliant forum, it's better than our UK soap opera's.

            Keep up the good work, it's really fascinating reading.
