Furthermore, the thing between Kate and Jon did not go well following their very messy and public divorce in 2009.
In June 2009, Kate and Jon announced that they were separating in an episode on cable network TLC.
After the announcement, in separate interviews, Kate and Jon stated that the show would continue; however, TLC doubted if the show was still viable due to their separation.
The divorce was finalized on 18th December 2009, and Kate was granted the ownership of the family home and primary custody of the eight children.
Later, disputes broke between Jon and Kate; after one of their daughters, Hannah was taken to the orthodontist, which also led to an argument over who would be taking their daughter home. In the end, Hannah went home with Jon.
In August 2018, Jon revealed that their daughter Hannah permanently lived with him and that he was also fighting for an ongoing custody battle with Kate.
In April 2018, Jon won the custody of Hannah as well as wining physical and legal custody of Collin on 24th October 2018.
While two of the children, Hannah and Collin, live with their father, the other six kids live with Kate.
In August 2019, it was also revealed that Kate was not trying to win back custody of Hannah and Collin and made no attempt to speak with or see Collin.
