Generally speaking, child support is based on ALL income source and that would include lottery winnings. CS is based on how you would generally be allocating a certain percentage of all income to your spending on the child. Normally, you would spend any lottery winnings on child as well.

However, it seems a little ridiculous depending on the $. Reasonable people should agree to something in-between. Some extra CS for a 1 year period (not per table) AND a lump sum put into trust for the childs future. This however would require 2 reasonable people which is often not the case in family court....
