I believe if my son or daughter hit the lottery it would only draw us closer together because we are already a close knit family. We do everything together and that would only make things better. I don't believe our relationship would change because we have more money.

    "I don't believe our relationship would change because we have more money."

    The minute you start thinking of what you child or any other family member owns as ours, you got a problem.  Nothing breaks up a good relationship faster than one of the persons thinking what is owned by the other belongs to both.

        [QUOTE]I don't believe our relationship would change because we have more money.[/QUOTE]

         

        Although I'm not rejecting your statement that you and your children are close, you shouldn't assume that any money that belongs to them, also belongs to you. In fact, even if they win the lottery, you shouldn't have any expectations about the amount of money you will receive. You will receive what they give you and you should be happy with whatever it is. So a question you should ask yourself is "Would my relationship with my child(whichever one happens to win the lottery) change because HE/SHE has more money?".

            I knew a guy he was getting up in age when he won the lottery he has spoken with his daughter and they decided to get an annuity in her name, he had stipulated to her that he was doing this so both of them could live comfortably for some time. She was to make sure that she took care of him split the annuity. No contracts were drawn. She claimed the annuity.

            On day he came home for lunch and she was gone hasn't seen or heard from her since.

            This was a loving daughter all the way up to a point in time where she must have felt a need to be free from the grips of family life.

            Where money is concerned especially a large sum of it no one knows what will happen after a win.

              Ditto.

              Not quite the lottery, but I have a cousin whose father (my Uncle) passed away in 1998.

              He was about 75, she is 45, and when he died, all-of-a-sudden ANOTHER daughter the guy had - one that nobody in the entire family knew even existed - one that (apparently) he had not seen since she was 6 months old - showed up to claim half of his estate.  She got it - and promptly disappeared again, nobody has seen or heard from her, but she apparently had proof he was her father.

              She was born in Germany and lives in Texas, and somehow kept up on where my Uncle was, but there has to be more to the story than we know about. 

              When there is money involved - especially a large amount - expect problems to come out of the woodwork - some you would have never even dreamed of. 

              **************************************************************************************************************

              If I won the lottery, what would my children do ?

              They would expect a free ride for the rest of their lives, but I would make sure that wouldn't happen. We don't need more Lindsey Lohans and Paris Hiltons. 

              It would not pull us together, it would push us further apart.

                  Also if a parent remarries or a child gets married, their spouse may own half of what they have.  This also creates hard feelings when the family member sees the spouse (a stranger to them) part owner of what they think is theirs.

                      The only solution is to be anonymous (Go to an anonymous state, such as DE/KS/ND/MD or obtain anonymity in NH/OH/OK using a trust and tell NO ONE.  Otherwise, relatives you never knew existed would appear out of nowhere.  Oh my God, I couldn't imagine what it would be like to win $15 million and the whole nation knew that I won.  Believe me, I would definitely form a trust and remain anonymous.

                      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!
