Foreclosure set to go forward on Octomom: Should she lose her children?
A judge threw out "Octomom" Nadya Suleman's bankruptcy claim Tuesday
after she failed to file the proper paperwork to show she can't pay as
much as $1 million in debt.
That means creditors can move to collect what they say they're owed, and
a pending foreclosure can go ahead against the La Habra, Calif., house
Suleman lives in with her 14 children, according to The Orange County
Register ( http://bit.ly/KMFV8L ).
Suleman's case was thrown out because she didn't file a dozen financial
documents and statements required to prove bankruptcy. In her initial
filing April 30, Suleman estimated that she owed as much as $1 million
that she is unable to pay.
Suleman had sought protection from her debts under Chapter 7 bankruptcy,
which means a court-appointed trustee would have liquidated her assets
to pay off creditors before she is discharged from most of her debts.
According to the filing, she owed money to more than 20 parties,
including utility companies, her father and a Christian school.
A representative for Suleman did not immediately provide comment.
Suleman is an unemployed single mother who became famous after giving
birth to octuplets in 2009. Her octuplets are the world's longest living
