"Octomom" Files for Bankruptcy

"Octomom" Nadya Suleman is filing for bankruptcy, telling a federal court she has as much as $1 million in debt.
The Orange County Register reports Suleman wants a fresh start and says filing for bankruptcy is what's best for her children.
The La Habra mother of 14 has reports up to $50,000 in assets in federal court filings.
Suleman will file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which means a court-appointed trustee would liquidate her assets to pay off creditors before she is discharged from most of her debts.
Among others, Suleman owes money to her father, the city's water department, DirecTV and Whittier Christian School, where at least some of her children are students.
Suleman also owes more than $30,000 in rent payments on her four-bedroom house.

    A "fresh start" for her children would be termination of her parental rights.

    Her kids have to Poop in a bucket outside because the pluming is messed up and she doesnt have enough to get it fixed, but she still goes out and spends hundreds of dollars getting her hair done. Where exactly are child protective services?

    Why is Jackson know as the "Teenage Pregnancy capitol of the world?" Because over half of its population lives like this and expects handouts from regular working people.

    Consider her an unfit mother and terminate her parental rights. She put her self in a position to willfully neglect her children and we pay for that. How many parents that cannot support their children in "normal" circumstances lose their children for not being able to support them? After all the support she has received from her parents, and she took away their retirement for her own selfish needs. This "mom" has no idea how to be a good parent. She should have stopped after the first 6 children and not went for fame with the other 8, especially with special needs children.

    "Octomom" = stupid. Very stupid. I don't want to know where her stupid kids are going to end up. She should be banned from the media. She wants this attention. Part of being a parent is supporting your kids. Where did she think the means to support these kids was going to come from? She planned all of this. She should lose custody.

      Why did you refer to her kids as "stupid"? Her kids are victims to HER stupidity. They had and have no choice in the matter.

    She exemplifies what is wrong with our society. Selfish, greedy, self-absorbed.... the list goes on. People should use her as a role model. A role model of what not to do with one's life.
