If this spouse's estranged husband wants a divorce, she should tell him to apply for one within Indiana.  This husband should hire a VERY experienced divorce lawyer as should this wife (since this case involves VERY significant deception via an LLC without the wife's name on it, by the husband).  The wife's lawyer should be given the name of her husband's LLC formed DURING their marriage for researching, generating subpoena to review bookkeeping, etc. 

The husband should inform his lawyer to request that the divorce court judge take the Indiana legally required 50% of the jackpot win due his wife only from the AFTER-TAXES (fed and state and county income taxes) net amount that he has only paid part of this year ... then will be paying Fed final apx. 10% of income tax in year 2013.  [Several lawyers have forgotten to do this in the past and their client's don't realize the HUGE financial mistake until sometimes several months after the divorce and decree has been finalized!  He needs a good legal eagle though, since he used deception in order to claim the jackpot amount last month ... sometimes judges punish people for using deception, so the judge could require him to pay an additional 10%+ to wife, of the net that husband's LLC received.]

Eventually this Indiana married couple will both be entirely free of the legal bond.  It will probably be a refreshing feeling for each (probably the children too, at this point).  Anyhow, I hope that each member of their immediate family will quickly enjoy, each being BIG multi-millionaires (either together or separately)!  It's not a bad sharing situation, truly.

    This reminds me of the  Holly and Joshua Lahti case where Holly Lahti didn't want to give Josh half of her $80 million that she won after taxes in Idaho's Mega Millions game.What I hear is Holly had to give Josh half of her winnings because Holly and Josh were still married when she won. Looks like it will turn out the same way with Ericka and James.

        This story is a sad reflection on marriages.    It shows that many people stay with their spouses out of convenience, not love.   Finances play a big role, sadly because some people can't afford to get divorced and live on their own.   I know a guy who has been living with his girlfriend for 2 years.   He has no intentions of marrying this woman, but stays with her because she watches his kids (from a previous marriage) and splits the bills with him.   He admitted if he won the lottery, he'd be gone in a heart beat.    It's too bad cause she thinks he's gonna marry her one day.   One things for sure, when a stack of money is on the table, ambigious relationships clear up really fast.

          LOL  Why do I have the feeling that if this was the other way around people would still be on the woman's side and trashing the husband?

          Actually you are right.  Just go back to the posts of that Idaho woman who won big...and oops! She was still married to her estranged husband.  I think people tend to side with the person who has physical custody of the kids, and in the absence of kids in the relationship, the thought maybe that the woman sacrificed her body, her career, and/or her familial relationships to be with the guy and deserves to keep it all if she is the jackpot winner or at least get half if the guy is the winner.  Besides, the think, the guy can easily make more money than the lady so he won't be hurting'. Well, statistics now show women earn more than men in certain industries, and I don't think men can earn anything at a Bunny Ranch establishment unless he is the owner of the joint.  But those who know the law says it goes both ways...half to the estranged spouse regardless of situation.

          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

            Now personally, I would not consider getting a divorce since I know how to have my cake and eat it too (this saying makes no sense at all, but people use it all the time when talking about people who have extra-marital affairs, and hopefully by me pointing this out, it can die a quick death just like, "I'm just saying" (oh really!) and "At the end of the day" (last time I checked everyday has an ending, so it is not necessary to state the obvious.). 

            Yes this post refers to what the guy should have done unless the peace of mind of not being with her is worth half his winnings, and also rails against pointless colloquisms.

              If nothing else, the cartel certainly does stick together.

              If "Mom" wants the wallet access kids, the courts award "Mom" the kids, unless she's a complete psycho -- and sometimes even then.

                There is more to this story . Much more. The RUMOR in Shelbyville was that Indiana did not want to pay out because the winner was an ex-con. Perhaps a probation/gambling issue. The person got an attorney.

                 

                NOW, the latest is that an elderly woman won.

                  I didn't think if you was an ex-con , that you couldn't collect your JP. Well! here we go again with this mystery dealing with the lottery ,well if I was his wife this money would be in me and my kids hand if he can't collect it, after all half would be our anyway.The lottery wouldn't be keeping this this Jackpot.Cussing FaceNo No

                      There was a Mass. winner that was an ex-con bank robber and the lottery didn't want to pay because his probation terms included not gambling.Don't know what ever happened to him.

                       

                      I heard one story that the Indiana lottery guy had just gotten out of prison but don't know if that is true.

                       

                      The attorney for the wife has to be working on contigent basis . What if her husband was just high and made the whole story up.  This one is going to be interesting.
