Yep Lurking

 

Lesson for those shacking up who say that paper doesn't mean anything ... make it official. I know more than one shacked up couple that would run in the opposite direction should they land a windfall like this. Sad.

Totally agree. Together for 10 years, have a kid together, have a business together, why not just get married? But since they didn't, then she should have signed the ticket with him or gotten a contract drawn up. I never heard about a couple winning this JP; when news broke it was all about him, he bought the ticket, he had won it solely, there was no mention of her being a co-winner. I feel sorry for her but I think she's only entitled to get what he feels like giving her. I'm sure she'll get a whole lot from child support now. So she'll land on her feet no matter what.

    How does Sanchez attorney know of how much has gone to the Dominican republic, charities & missing millions?
    Could it be that Pedro & Ines discussed what went where and why? Is it possible that there was a falling out over this reckless spending? - just wondering.
    I can't shake the idea that her attorney seems to know so much about the money, how did he come by this information?
    I seriously doubt Pedro would offer that information to Sanchez attorney.

    That's what forensic accountants are for. He didn't have to tell her anything for her to find out about it. I think if they had been that open about what money went where, she'd know where that $20m is. I'm not saying they didn't discuss it, I'm saying they didn't have to for her to find out that information. I think hiring a forensic accountant is one of the first things her lawyer would have done. If she wants a significan't amount of money, they need to know where it is and how much is left.

      Doesn't matter what she knows if she can't prove she's entitled to it, she won't get a cent.  It's not like she was married to him and is now getting a divorce and splitting up community property.

        What a shame that it has come down to this.

        I remember thinking that his wife/girlfriend was good looking and that they were a good looking couple. Now fighting over money. Now look at the lengths Pedro will go to to hide the money from her.

        I'm sure he offered her more money than she's ever seen but she and her lawyers are greedy and are trying to take him for millions. Greedy mothers.

        The lawyers are coming! Run Pedro, Run!!!

        the lawyers are coming

            Teddi- l am familiar with the term Forensic accounting, however that should not have been employed in this case because that works in " spousal divorces " these two were not married unless Pedro had her in on all financial proceedings including this jackpot.
            Lots of lies going on between these two.

              The problem isn't that they shacked-up for 10 years (who hasn't, really). It's that, she doesn't understand that she should have signed the darn ticket. Her lawyers are really reaching, here. It's not like he held the ticket, ditched her, waited a while, then cashed in after the dust settled. She failed to secure her portion by co-signing. Fail. Case dismissed. It's a <snip> shame that people are willing to waste money on lawyers rather than sit down and come to an agreement. Sooooooooooo much money could be kept "in-house" rather than funding some lawyers bank account.

                    "A large chunk of the money already is gone — $57 million has been sent to the Dominican Republic, $5 million was given away, $300,000 was spent on the home in Clifton and $20 million can't be located"

                    $57 million was sent to the Dominican Republic?  Who was it sent to?  Also, $20 million can't be located?  Who's doing the forensic accounting there, the 3 stooges?

                        Forensic accountants are used whenever one party wants to find the total assets of another party. Doesn't have to be spouses and doesn't have to be divorce related. She doesn't need to be a spouse or even an ex-spouse. She wants his money. She's going to try to prove she's entitled to a share of his money, her side of the aisle will do their level best to determine how much she can conceivably get, and they're going to want to know where it all is. That's simply due diligence on her lawyer's part.  Seems pointless to me since I personally don't think she is entitled to a penny, but she can use those findings to significantly up her child support payments later on. I'm sure that will be the first thing she will do once she loses this case.

                          Next, he'll be in court with the IRS questioning him where all this money has gone in this short period of time. Only $300,000 for a home? Yet he sends $57m to the DR, $5m gave away, and $20M cannot be found?

                          Very sketchy.

                          The IRS does not care how you spend your money as long as you pay appropriate initial tax and any applicable gift tax for amounts over the limit.

                          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                          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!

                              $20 million missing??? I'm pretty sure the IRS will wants it share whether it's missing or not. And I doubt he paid all taxes on the $20 million $5million and the $57M sent to DR. Or perhaps he did and that's why he blew through a large portion of his money so soon. Who knows??? I'll just kick back and wait for the next story, I know there will be more to come soon.
