I recently defied the odds and won $10k from a second chance drawing from a scratch off game and I need some help. My wife purchased the ticket and I registered it on the lottery website in my name. My wife actually signed the back of the ticket and put her info on it before I registered it online. Well, as I mentioned we won the $10k and now Im unsure how the lottery office is going to do this when we go to claim the prize?? Are they going make me claim it or will they just let my wife claim it because she actually owns the winning ticket and she signed it?? Really could use someones help on this...thanks

    Sounds to me like you don't trust either your wife or the lottery people who will be cutting the check. If Georgia is a community of property state,  there should be no worries. That is just my opinion. Better get solid advice from those who are familiar with this type of thing.
    All the best.

    Moral of the story: Have all your ducks in a row before making hasty decisions- like filling in forms with your name as the primary when the item in question has someone else's signature on it.
