Child custody modifications could be in the future for Gosselin

On Behalf of | Sep 21, 2017 | Child Custody |

Reality television fans in Georgia may be familiar with the show “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” Off the air for many years now, the reality TV show focused on a couple who welcomed sextuplets into their family. Viewers had a front row seat to the trials and tribulations of a house full of kids, as well as increasing tensions between a husband and wife. Eventually, the couple divorced and began what would be a long and contentious child custody battle.

It appears that Jon and Kate Gosselin may be preparing for a return to court. After a recent altercation, a GoFundMe account was created to gather money to pay for Jon Gosselin’s legal fees. He may be planning to ask the court to grant him increased rights and access to his children.

The incident took place outside of an orthodontist office where one of the Gosselin children was receiving treatment. After her appointment, the parents got into an argument over who would transport the child home. Witnesses filmed Kate Gosselin attempting to pull her daughter from a car. Police were called to the scene.

This is not the first time that authorities have been called in to handle an altercation between Jon and Kate Gosselin. If the couple returns to court, changes could be made to their existing child custody arrangement. As of the time of this report, the GoFundMe campaign had only raised $2,400 over a period of 10 days. For those in Georgia who have followed this family’s struggles for many years, it is likely that additional details will soon be made available to the public.
