Default Can ex's ex get my lottery winnings?

I am married. My husband has a child from a previous marriage that he pays child support for. My question is, if I purchase a lottery ticket and win some actual money, like a large amt., is his ex wife or child entitled to some of my winnings?

Your husband is solely responsible for child support for his children. Nobody else. So the answer to your question is no. If you win, or perhaps you already did and that is why you're curious, she cannot touch any of your money; neither for herself or her child. You are not responsible for another woman's children.

YOur income regardless of the source is not a factor for your husbands child support unless the ex can prove you are intentionally hiding your husbands assests and income under your name.

As long as you claim any lottery winnings and file taxes claiming those winning (if you are required to claim them on taxes in your area) then no the ex can not make a claim against them.

All of the above is correct. However if you and your husband file jointly for taxes and he is behind in child support any tax returns can go to his ex.

Thanks for the help
And no, he's not behind in child support, never has been. He pays the first of the month before anything else is paid, always has.
