SANTA ANA, Calif., May 16 (UPI) -- Nadya Suleman's bankruptcy case has been dismissed because the so-called octomom failed to complete the necessary paperwork, court records in California show.

Suleman is once again in danger of losing her house in La Habra, The Orange County Register reported Wednesday. She lives there with her four daughters and 10 sons, all conceived through in vitro fertilization.

A court lifted the stay on foreclosure Tuesday and threw out her bankruptcy petition.

Suleman filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in late April. She said she owed at least $500,000 and possibly twice that, and said she had no money for expenses like utilities.

In 2009, Suleman became one of the world's most controversial women when she gave birth to octuplets. She already had six children.

Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the court could have used any assets available to pay Suleman's creditors. She said at the time she filed she might have no assets.
