Court documents relating to the custody agreement and divorce of TLC reality stars Jon and Kate Gosselin have surfaced on the web. The documents from Berks County court house were put up by an unfan blog last week.

Jon Gosselin's lawyer, Mary T. Vidas states that the documents are not from her office. Kate's lawyer Mark Momjian did not respond by the time of this articles publication. The documents contain a tgv watermark on them and could be documents regularly made public by the courts dockets.

The documents list the dates of filings since April of last year and also include a divorce document where Kate's lawyers are actively working to seal all records of the divorce. It seems that because Jon left the state of PA foreign divorce papers were also filed in another state and Kate wants those documents sealed.

TMZ reported earlier this year that Jon Gosselin may be in contempt of court for releasing child custody agreement information that the Judge has ordered be kept quiet.

The documents have created speculation that Kate Gosselin was actually being held in contempt by Jon but if you read through the list you can see that it is Kate's lawyers filing to keep the documents sealed. The custody papers stem from Jon's original filing in April of last year in which Kate was a defendant against Jon's attempts to gain custody. Momjian called the original filing reckless.

    The document that is posted here shows that Jon filed contempt of court on 1/6/2011. Kate filed her own contempt of court charges on 1/14/2011. TMZ reported that Kate filed contempt of court charges on 1/10/2011. That is most likely the date that the papers were submitted to the court. It can take a few days for them to be entered into the system.

    TMZ reported that Kate filed her contempt petition "last Thursday" which would have been 1/6 - the day Jon filed his contempt petition. Seems they were getting their bad info from someone on Kate's side. It doesn't take 8 days for the docket entries to be entered. Bad reporting

    AND anyone can get the docket by going to the Berks County courthouse. The docket is not sealed . . . just the actual documents they are filing.

    I guess anon23 doesn't have any reading comprehensive skills.
    Try reading the article again.

    The author of this article did not read the document closely. On the second page, under docket summery it says

    The proposed order is in regards to

    12/16/2010 Deft Katie's Emergency Petition for Special Relief with proposed order

    The proposed order is probably for the trip to Australia. I wonder why it took Kate so long to apply for Special Relief of the custody agreement.

    Dig a little deeper, Rachel. Kate has already been found in contempt...back in October 2009. Probably due to money SHE took out of their joint account right around the time she went on tv and blabbed that Jon 'stole' money from her and she couldn't pay her bills. Jon won and Kate had to replace the money she took out...$100,000. You're on the right track.

    You are either honestly mistaken, or you are trying to re-write history. Jon was ordered to replace the money he stole, not Kate. She was not even required to produce an accounting of her family's expenditures when Jon's lawyer demanded one. He had to replace every dime he stole, and Hayley Glassman reported that she had to lend him the money to do it. He was earning nothing, and spending his family's money on girls, travel, and entertainment. Not pretty.

    Kate was FIRST order to replaced the money SHE STOLE FROM JON.... Kate took 100k before the divorce. SHE admitted this on The Today Show.. The same day she cried about Jon taking money. Also, the same day she said she wanted to buy a Mother of Pearl ring after crying about the BILLS.

    What a freaking tool.

    There is still a judge who allowed this woman to take all those kids out of school so she could maintain her lifestyle. They all need to be in school not working for mom.
    At this point who cares who filed what when and who took money when, let's get the issue back to the kids. They are what is important here and their education and social skills are sorely lacking at this point.
    Maybe Jon would be the better parent for all of them at this point in their life. Afterall, the parenting they are receiving from Kate is not helping them so far.

    Where is Kate now? Did they return from Australia/NZ? I would have thought that there would be mention and photos of them returning. What is happening with their schooling? Perhaps they have all been expelled and that the children will be kept behind the gates with Kate as their teacher.
