Teri Polo has had the unfortunate event of meeting money trouble.

The Meet the Parents star filed for bankruptcy on April 14, according to federal court documents obtained by E! News, claiming she's buried in a massive amount of debt.

Polo's filing details various unpaid amounts to the IRS and credit cards, along with attorney fees, which total up to nearly $1 million owed. Her rep has no comment.

The actress is best known for her role in Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers and Little Fockers. She currently stars in Jennifer Lopez's ABC Family series The Fosters.
