One billion not enough?
As our firm previously indicated, a One Billion Dollar ($1,000,000,000.00) Divorce Settlement was offered by oil tycoon Harold Hamm to his soon to be ex-wife Sue Ann Hamm. Even though, both parties have appealed the divorce settlement, Mr. Hamm nonetheless forwarded a check for just under Nine Hundred Twenty-Five Million Dollars ($925,000,000.00) to Mrs. Hamm. Mrs. Hamm has rejected the check. She contends the award is unfair because the Hamm’s were married for twenty-six (26) years, have two (2) children and no prenuptial agreement. Additionally, she claims that Mr. Hamm is worth over Twenty Billion Dollars (20,000,000,000.00). For his part Mr. Hamm claims that due to the drop in oil prices his company and his own wealth are less than what has been reported.
Some individuals have reported feelings of elation and liberation once the divorce process is finalized. One popular quote out there is “getting divorced sucks, being divorced doesn’t.” Hopefully this quote applies equally to Harold Hamm and Sue Ann Hamm and their Billion Dollar Divorce.
