time*treat, I am so anti-fraud that I would not propose anything fraudulent.  If she wouldn't have gone forward to claim the prize but instead had focused on getting her divorce finalized, she would not have materially had more assets to share at time of divorce.  Remember, there is no "lottery registration" requirement that identifies the winner immediately after the winning drawing.  The hypothetical fact she would have come forward after the divorce was final would have sufficient plausible deniability to avoid any notion of fraud as there have been many lottery winners who discovered they had won just days before the expiration date approached.  My recommendation to not tell children is also sound.  Would you want your young children going around telling the world their mommy is a jackpot lottery winner?  Children cannot keep a secret and this knowledge not only puts them at risk, but also the family at large.  When I win, even my mother would not know I won.

Time*treat is right. There was a case where a winner (belive it was a man) tried to keep the win secret during a divorce proceeding and the judge awarded the entire prize to the spouse. While waiting to claim the prize might prevent charges of fraud or concealing assets, the asset still exists, is still part of the marital property, and is still part of the settlement. Waiting to claim the prize and then modifying the divorce settlement simply adds more legal fees to the cost of settling the divorce.

    Always two sides to the story. What if he walked away from the marriage because he walked in on her with the neighbor? Or his best friend? Give the man half his money. Unless they were divorced, the money should be split.

      Walkin' out on an evil woman is one thing but turning your back on your kids is inexcusable.

      And this is money that would have been theirs someday.

      He shouldn't get a nickle in my book.

          I hope her attorney goes for back child support, alimony, school fees and everything else

          He is clearly a dead beat father if she has a good attorney when they finish settling he want,

          have $4Million. The atty fees alone can be 30-35%. I predict he will be broke in 1yr and he

          will also more than likely get sued by someone that he knows for something petty, However

          you reap just what you sow. I'm going to win the lottery soon and my ex-boyfriend called

          me after having several dreams that i won. He asked me to give him money once i win, But

          when you have money alot of people change.

            Lets not forget...if they are still married there is no childsupport payments. He SHOULD still be paying since he wasn't on the scene...but we don't know if he's been paying or not. If the shoe was on the other foot I would award who ever has the kids. Period. BOTH people are responsible for their kids.

             

            Was there a story...or this one it...where he left her and has a girlfriend....and wife won the lottery and he wants his half. (I faguely remember that story) Anywho...it boils down to who has had the kids and has been taking care of them. Husband or wife...I don't care. If he walked out and didn't look back...it should be hers. If he's been in it every step of the way but couldn't be with HER anymore than it should be 50/50.

              Certainly, some of the money will get doled out to the children, on a weekly basis (soon, hopefully, once monies released from lottery headquarters via judge), during the next 15 years, maybe longer. 

              It would be a good idea for one OR both parents (presuming these three children are also from the husband) to also set up a will, trust, and investment account for each adult and child too, this year.

                Exactly...her initial offer of 1mil and forgoing child support was not logical.  Give him his legal due but recoup as much as you can from him within legal rights!
