The ex-wife of oil magnate Harold Hamm, Sue Ann Arnall, turned down a check for $975 million, claiming that her stake is worth more than that, CNNMoney reported on January 7.

Arnall is fighting for more money as she filed an appeal claiming that the oil tycoon’s vast fortune was both because of her efforts and his. Hamm agreed to the payment last November, although he also filed for an appeal, claiming that his fortune had been reduced due to the sharp fall in oil prices.

Harold Hamm is the founder of Continental Resources, a large petroleum liquids producer where Arnall, an attorney, also held executive positions. The couple, who never created a pre-nuptial agreement, were married for 26 years and have two children together.

A divorce settlement could affect your future for years to come, and it is important that you fight for the wealth you are entitled to.
