Octomom's Bankruptcy Case Thrown out of Court

Posted on in Bankruptcy Attorney

A judge threw out a declaration of bankruptcy from Nadia “Octomom” Suleman after she failed to file the proper paperwork with the court.

Suleman failed to file a dozen financial statements to proving that she is unable to pay creditors. Without the protection of filing for bankruptcy, she is now subject to a home foreclosure on the house she shares with her fourteen children.

After failing to file the proper paper work, the court gave her an extension. Suleman failed to meet the new deadline, and as a result, the court lifted the temporary stay that would've blocked the foreclosure sale of her home.

She had planned to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which would have allowed the court to liquidate most of her assets in order to pay creditors. In the initial filing on April 30th, she claimed that she is unable to pay her more than twenty creditors that include utility companies and her own father. At the time of the filing, she stated that she owes creditors more than $1 million dollars.

It is unknown if Suleman made the bankruptcy filing with or without an attorney. When asked for comment, an agent responded to calls from the media.

If you are in the process of filing for bankruptcy, it is important that you speak with a qualified Chicago area bankruptcy attorney. They can lead you through the steps of filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy and ensure that all the steps required by the court are followed.
