Ohio allows lottery winners to remain anonymous if you form a trust to claim the prize.

Mr. Rundown99,

Forgive me, but I need to 'correct' what you wrote in the blue text. 
You had said to the effect that the only one
you should marry, is the one that's truly in love with you.

I'm afraid the better advice would be "to marry only the one that not only knows about your jackpot win,
but agrees to an
agreement, that they are entitled, essentially to nothing, in the event of separation.

Mr. Groppo

  • Don't chase the numbers you play.
  • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
  • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
            (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

    Doesn't sound like you have ever been in love.  Perhaps moving from one relationship to another with no solid commitment or vision that included the opposite sex. So correct me if I am wrong,  but you Mr G get married,  you decide after many years you going to throw your wife under the bus because the woman you presently seeing has a superb rack that dwarfs the Mrs? So all that time that the Mrs had with you  must account for nothing & she should leave with the present clothes on her back? What planet did you say you came from?

         Even a prenuptial agreement will take care of the needs of the party you are divorcing. That is why both parties will need their own lawyer and get the agreement finalized at least one year before the wedding. 

         Divorce will turn the marriage into a business entity.

          Mr./Ms. Noise-Gate,

          Nowhere in my reply did I mention to not leave the previous Mrs., 'anything'. 
          Of course, any feeling human being would leave their loved ones something.

          I meant for the "ex" to not expect (and ideally demand) anything.

          So, for example, if I won $300 million samolians, I think my wife (and this is just fantasy land, you understand)
          would be good for $2 million cash. And, I would even assume the taxes, since it would be considered a "gift".
          Plus, in my final will, who knows?

          But this was under the assumption that the lotto winner (I hope me), had yet to be married.

          I like the "throw under the bus" part.  (But it comes too early, anyway. The y8, I think,  for down-town.)

                Sorry to hear of your misfortune.

                Some states have common law marriage that after I believe here is seven years, so you've got to be careful with that too.

                  It's wonderful to be in a position to do great things but I hope they have put aside a good amount to take care of their own family. Some people may get caught up in trying to save the world and enhance their community that they would soon find themselves depleted of all their funds.

                  Never attempt to maintain a lifestyle you can't afford.

                     OH Groppo, your explanation is hilarious. You did say that she should receive nothing..remember?  What got me laughing was recalling a nature channel program l was watching last night. It was a fight between a mongoose & a cobra. The cobra kept swaying back & forth in an attempt to confuse the mongoose but lost the battle in the end. That swaying reminded me of your avatar with it's tail going back and forth. Attempting to confuse us..Perhaps.

                    Peace- nonetheless.

                        It was indicated that the winners intend to be very generous and community minded in sharing their great fortune. As an example of this, we are told that they have made $100,000 in donations; this represents .04% of $256 million- not 4%, not 1%, not even 1/2 of a percent, but .04%. Hardly seems generous to me. Hannaford donated the entirety of their $75,000 commission plus an additional $25,000; now that's generous and I would hazard a guess that the store hasn't made $256 million in their years of operation at the selling location. I don't care what the winners do with their money and any donation is meaningful but when such a large point is made as to how wonderful and generous they will be to others some scrutiny as to their actions is warranted.

                          Congrats to the New Hampshire Powerball winners if they're putting all they're winnings in a Trust. Is a Trust like a special bank and does it control how much they can withdraw or spend the money? I wonder because I heard the Acosta folks from the 1/3 billion Powerball did the same thing.

                            Mr. Rundown99,

                            Forgive me, but I need to 'correct' what you wrote in the blue text. 
                            You had said to the effect that the only one
                            you should marry, is the one that's truly in love with you.

                            I'm afraid the better advice would be "to marry only the one that not only knows about your jackpot win,
                            but agrees to an
                            agreement, that they are entitled, essentially to nothing, in the event of separation.

                            Mr. Groppo

                            I understand what you are saying.  But the reality is that if someone only wants to marry the lottery winner because of the lottery money, then he or she will probably try to make the lottery winner feel guilty if the lottery winner asks for any prenuptial agreement.

                             

                            This is what I think about all of this:

                             

                            I look at this in terms of three possible scenarios:

                             

                            1.  If you are married when you win the jackpot, then you should stay married to that person.

                             

                            2.  If you are engaged or in a serious long-term relationship with someone when you win the jackpot, then you should marry that person.

                             

                            3.  If you are totally single and unattached (never married, divorced, or widowed) and not in any serious or long-term relationship with anyone at the time you win the jackpot, then you should stay single.

                            Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

                            If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

                              Any winner in any state can claim the money with a trust, or an LLC for that matter.  However, in most states the name of the possessor of the ticket must release his or her identity.  In addition, a lot of these states, such as my state of Virginia, require a press conference.  For asset protection purposes alone I'd consider myself insane if I didn't make trusts and LLCs a priority when claiming a jackpot this size.  It increases the difficulties about a hundred fold for any leach from the past trying to use the legal system to mooch.
