I pray this lady is successful and gets alimony for one to two years. If she was a homemaker in the marriage, that's a decision the two of them made together. She has to have time to retrain for work outside the home and maybe go back to school. The time would allow her to be self sufficient. The win occurred during the time of marriage. It doen't matter if they were in and out of the marriage. If they were not divorced she's eligible for alimony. And that certainly would include some of winnings from the lottery as well as his prior employment. An attorney could pursue financial payments based on alimony not the winnings of the lottery. this would include any and all assets being considered.
Someone earlier mentioed a case where someone claimed $28 million dollar lottery one day after their divorce was final. I don't know what state that was but the ex-spouse could and should sue them for payment because assett were accumulated during the marriage. Their attorney coud easily find the date the numbers were drawn if the win was a resulto of an online wager.
For all of those people out there who are so cruel toward the lady in this case, Think on this, How would you feel if you were the spouse who was left after your husband or wife won the lottery??????
