Octomom’s Faulty Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Filing Thrown out of Court

Nadya Suleman, who is more commonly known as “Octomom,” had the unfortunate distinction of having her bankruptcy petition thrown out of court this week after she failed to complete the proper paperwork, according to a report from the Orange County Register.

Sources indicate that Suleman, a single mother of 15 children who gave birth to octuplets three years ago, has filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in an effort to stop a foreclosure action against her home in La Habra, California.

But Suleman failed to include several key financial documents that the bankruptcy judge needed in order to complete the bankruptcy case. And Suleman apparently had ample opportunity to fix her errors.

After initially failing to file a dozen financial statements required by the court, the judge gave her an extra week to give the paperwork to the court, but she failed to contact the bankruptcy court by the deadline.

As a result, the judge dismissed her case. Unfortunately for Suleman, the dismissal of her case means that the foreclosure action against her home may proceed, and creditors to whom she owes money can once again actively seek repayment.

Suleman’s refusal to abide by the court’s orders is even more puzzling given the size of her debts, which may include as much as $1 million in unpaid loans. Her filing includes 21 different creditors, including a Christian school, Kaiser Permanente, and, curiously, her own father.

In her filing, Suleman claimed that she is unable to pay her mortgage, the cost of her children’s school tuition, or even her water and electric bills.

Suleman gained instant national fame in January 2009 after she gave birth to eight babies at once, which sources say is only the second successful octuplet birth in the history of the United States.

However, a public backlash soon ensued after it was revealed that Suleman already had six children, and that she conceived her octuplets after receiving extensive fertility treatments.

Today, Nadya Suleman claims that she has no assets, and no steady employment, although sources say she recently made a bit of money after a series of topless photo shoots.
