Looks like a fraudulent bankruptcy filing if you ask me.
One theory is that Janelle's children were already declared on a previous bankruptcy in 1997. That may be why they are missing.Perhaps, an attorney recommended he not run the children through a second bankruptcy filing?I mean, having children go through bankruptcy more than once ever 6.5 years could be stressful or something.
The bankruptcy papers also have other inconsistencies. When listing the children's personal property, he states that he has 2 girls and 5 boys, but when listing his expenses, he lists 3 girls and 4 boys. Kody does not even know what gender his children are! Also, he does not indicate that he has other "wives" or baby-mamas. So, he mislead the court by stating that Meri was the mother of his 7 children.
