When I win the $189 Mega Millions jackpot this coming Tuesday, is there anyway my husbands' ex-spouse can claim any portion of the jackpot for child support for their two children?

    If you file a joint return and the child support collection is at the IRS level, then I say yes.

      Most likely. You would really need a good lawyer for that trust. When you marry someone with children then those are the risks you take.

        I wouldn't worry about that because I plan on winning the whole amount  by myself.  Claiming it under a trust is another way of saying that you don't trust anyone else with your money.  White Bounce

          I'm sure it's only your blood relatives you need to deal with. Your husbands ex isn't entitled to anything of yours.

              If your husband is behind on childsupport, probably..

              When TN first started scratch offs.. A man won $7,000 on Lucky 7's.. He drove to Nashville to Collect and was given $2.68.  The rest was for Child support.  He was behind and the state was taking care of his children.

              If you have any fines, taxes.. etc not paid.. State sees to it that those are paid first.

              As far as sharing with the children.. Trust funds could be set up for them..

                  Thank's for your offer. I looked at a building the other day 1300 a month plus utilities. 2 floors 1800 sq foot each floor. I'm almost tempted to go for it. But i havent put the whole plan together it isn't something i could do all by myself. Need to find employees that are willing to get into a startup mode and suffer some losses until we get profitable. Still it's good to dream maybe that will come true maybe not. Meanwhile i'll keep looking for a cheaper building.

                    How about starting up a motorcycle "driving education" course at first and then from your enthusiasts you may be able to get some to enter  into your dream with you? You'll need a couple of acres for your obstacle course..with stopsigns and stoplights..mannequin pedestrians and that sort of stuff.

                      I think we have a couple of those here in Md. I know the state MVA has a program. i am not interested in teaching people how to drive MC's. Or dealing with the states rules and regulations reguarding such a venture. Eventually my mind will wander into an area that will get me going again until then i'll keep dreaming about stuff.

                          Thanks for all the insight!

                          I have determined that I like FOUR4me response the best and I'm going with that one.

                          He doesn't owe any back child support - they have equal custody. 

                          So, I am going to establish a TRUST, file taxes separately from my spouse and get the best lawyer money can buy!

                            I don't understand the question. Why not? Every state has different laws, but a parent needs to provide a certain percentage of his income and that income would change. How old are "his" children? Honestly, I'm not passing judgment here, but if you were in her situation, you'd want the best for your children too. So if they are young, I would think he'd want to help out his kids, set up trust funds for college, weddings and make sure his grandchildren also have a good life. That's a lot of money to worry about your husband sharing with his own children. As far as the ex goes, she isn't entitled to a dime unless he already owes her money. I know that a lot of people feel a woman often blows child support on her own needs, but the key word in "child support" is "child" so when someone asks "would his ex get" the answer that comes to mind is "no" but the "child" should get what he deserves.

                              With all due respect, I am not saying *not* to support the kids ages 11 and 13. They have 50/50 custody.

                              If I never win the lottery the children's education will still be provided for. If I never win the lottery we will still pay for the weddings.

                              When we get to the grandchildren, then that's a different story. I still want my lineage to have values about money, and they should still get a job, go to college and become a productive, contributing member to society and not depend on *free* money(as the children).

                              I'm thinking ahead--- that if his money grubbing ex comes after my money then I want to know what my rights are and what I should have done or planned ahead of time. I see how she acts with smaller amounts of money, then how will she act if she thinks **he won it? She would be even more crazy.

                              If my current income is not factored into the equation of child support, then why would my winnings be factored in?

                              Some children get things and instead of being appreciative towards it, they lose it, don't thank you or take it for granted, therefore when I do win a sizeable amount of money, I will not change their standard of living or gratitude by "buying" them or "giving them more", when I see how they act now.     I would love to buy them a house to live in, that would be in their best interest as opposed to moving from apt to apt. But I want to do things on my own terms, not because some one thinks they are entitled to my winnings by virtue of marriage.

                              The best things I want for the children are values, honesty, hardwork and success, things you can't buy and are long-lasting, not temporary like money. I want to teach them to fish, not fish for them.
