We're continuing the story from our last post of the unmarried couple who won the lottery. They split up a year later, and the court had to decide how to divide their assets. Last time, we reviewed the claims of the woman, Ms. K. Here, we will review the man's, Mr. C's, claims as well as the judge's decision. And, of course, we'll also discuss how this all might have unfolded in an Illinois court.
A story crossed our desk recently, a story about a couple who were not married either before or after the woman purchased a winning lottery ticket. They purchased three properties and, we hope, invested elsewhere. When they separated, a court had to determine the division of assets purchased with the $3 million.
