Jon & Kate Divorce Papers are Deceiving

Posted Jun 23rd 2009 6:00PM by TMZ Staff

There's a report floating out there that Kate Gosselin has been separated from Jon for two years. That's not true, and we have the lowdown.

We now know what Kate checked on the divorce papers, which are confidential. There are two grounds for a no fault divorce in Pennsylvania -- the first is waiting 90 days after the papers have been served. Then, if both Jon and Kate agree the marriage is "irretrievably broken" ... the divorce can proceed.

And there's a second option -- that they have lived separate and apart for 2 years. But that doesn't mean they have been separated for that long. It means she must wait 2 years from the moment she considered the marriage kaput and began living separately (if only in different bedrooms). We're told the real separation between Jon and Kate is very recent and Kate checked the box just to get the clock ticking.

We found out Kate checked both boxes, and here's why. Jon may not agree that the marriage is irretrievably broken. If that's the case she has to wait the two years. So by checking both boxes, Kate is hedging her bets.

Ultimately, she would have to prove to the judge when she considered herself separate from Jon.

Again, I don't watch the show, I have changed channels on occasion and caught a few minutes of the show but it is depressing to watch Kate and her anger. I did watch the last 1/2 hour of last night's show when it was replayed at midnight.
Our news station here also just announced that Jon and Kate have lived seperately for the past two years.
Looking back on the actions of the two I can see the way Jon rolled his eyes at Kate and had his own single friends that he was beginning to live the "single" life. He was moving on, but he did seem to be there when his kids needed him. He was home for the twins when they needed to come back from NC early and get to school. He also is the one who takes the kids to the emergency room when they are injured. He does seem like a responsible parent. He might have wanderlust, but he is showing that his kids are very important to him.
Kate on the other hand kept living the life she wanted to portray on television. A happily married family with 8 wonderful kids. She must have known that this would happen. I didn't think she looked believable when she said she had a 1/2 day cry fest and now see that she is a great actress. How many others said they felt sorry for her. All the while she was acting like the hurt wife when she knew it had been over for the past 2 years.
And why did she file first? What did Jon do over the weekend? Probably nothing, from what I read, he was home with his kids celebrating Father's Day. Maybe he said something inappropriate about the divorce to the kids, but that is my speculation, not something I have read anywhere. She is grandstanding again to get the sympathy to her side.
All I can say is I wish them the best. I know from my own experience that divorce is not easy, especially with young kids. My boys were 2, 5 and 7 and yes, MY BOYS! My ex sent the check but had no time for them, he was busy dating and living the single life. His first vacation with them was when they were over 21, to Las Vegas to drink and go to strip shows. I hope Jon and Kate can be civil to each other for the children because in the end the children will remember everything.

Kate Gosselin says in divorce papers that she and her husband Jon have lived "separate and apart" for at least two years. Gosselin filed for divorce Monday in Montgomery County Court in Pennsylvania, saying in papers that her 10-year marriage is "irretrievably broken."

The star of TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8" also says they have been unable to agree on dividing their assets.

The Gosselins had portrayed themselves as happy until the past few months, even renewing their wedding vows in Hawaii last year.

The divorce filing was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.

The series follows Jon and Kate Gosselin as they raise their eight young children, including 8-year-old twins and sextuplets who just turned 5.
I just got on the computer and I read this, I had to say OMG. Now I have to read all the follow up post. This actually shocked me, have to read all the thoughts.

TLC President Talks About ‘Jon & Kate’
By Brian Stelter

Jon and Kate Gosselin are separating, but the show will still be named “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” Eileen O’Neill, the president of TLC, says there are no plans to change the title.

In an interview Tuesday afternoon, Ms. O’Neill addressed the network’s decision to put the program on hiatus for six weeks following Monday’s announcement that the couple would initiate divorce proceedings.

“It’s hard to walk away from a big number,” she said, acknowledging the record-breaking audience of 10.6 million viewers on Monday, “but it really made sense so that everyone could adjust to the new circumstances.”

Ms. O’Neill said she couldn’t comment on when she learned that the couple was splitting up.

“Once we understood that they were going to make an announcement, we discussed various scenarios with them,” she said. “We really collaborated on what would make sense for the family.”

Next Monday, a retrospective of the program will be shown. She said it will allow people to “catch up and remind themselves how this story really grew.”

TLC says the show will return from its break on August 3. Asked whether there is a chance it could be postponed further, Ms. O’Neill said she was “very confident” in the date.

Asked whether the show could be canceled, she said “that’s not in anyone’s mind.”

Ms. O’Neill said she didn’t have a “hard date” for when the Gosselins plan to resume filming the series.

When Ms. O’Neill moved to TLC about 11 months ago, she was tasked with turning around the ailing channel. By all accounts, she has done so quite successfully; in May, the channel was up 24 percent among total viewers compared to the same month last year.

Ms. O’Neill is credited with discovering the Gosselins when she worked at the Discovery Health Channel, so I wondered whether Ms. O’Neill had felt personally affected by the at-times-heartbreaking documentary of a fractured family.

“You can’t help but become invested in people that you’ve worked with for several years,” she said, calling the Gosselins “wonderful children and really smart parents.”

“It certainly has an impact on you,” she said.

It is unclear when Mr. and Ms. Gosselin informed their eight children about the separation. But one thing is clear: cameras were not present.

“We did not document family conversations,” Ms. O’Neill said, adding: “As they’ve said all along, certain matters are private, and we’ve respected that.”

With Mr. and Ms. Gosselin taking turns raising the children, how will the program change?

Ms. O’Neill said “we anticipate that the focus will remain on the parent-child relationship.”

She observed that the “dual couch conversations” — featuring the couple together answering questions from a producer off-camera — “are not anticipated.”

Noting the number of divorces that affect children in the United States, Ms. O’Neill said, “it’s not lost on us.”

Well the 2 year thing is in question, this sounds like things are getting ugly already. Jon is speakinf to ET, someone leaked the divorce info that is a sealed case as far as I have read. I am not sure if someone at the courthouse would risk their job in this economy to leak something. Did Kate's people leak it because Jon is talking to ET. In his statement he said emotions are high. I really hope they do not let this get out of control, the people who walk away with the money are the lawyers. E news daily has something come on now an exclusive from Kate.

I worked for a attorney, but it's been a while, and with children the couple have to be separate for a year before starting the divorce. But living separate means not in the same house. So I wonder if Kate says that they've been living separate for two years so she can hurry up the divorce papers.
I read somewhere where "living apart" on the paper she filed can mean separate bedrooms for 2 years. I believe this. I doubt they have been intimate in 2 years. Extremely sad that they had a vow renewal complete with wedding cake covered in Bible verses if this is true! If they haven't been apart for 2 years, then that makes Kate a liar on an official document. Hmmm, either way, Kate looks like an idiot.

I don't think those kids would have been well adjusted if their parents had stayed together, the divorce is just going to make it all even worse.

But who cares about that... I'm more interested in your profile picture. Is that you with Jonathan Knight????? Did you meet him? Woooo hooo! How exciting! I'm going to see the New Kids on Thursday and I cannot wait!

I don't get all the outrage over the televised announcement of the divorce. There was so much criticism when people were calling them a farce pretending to be happy and together on the show. Now they come public with their decision and they get criticized. What were they supposed to do? Continue to pretend? They just can't win!

Yes, that's me and Jonathan Knight.
My friends and I used to chase them around a lot 20 years ago and we hung out with him many times. It was so good seeing him again and I was thrilled that he remembered me.

2 years my foot. The pathetic excuse of a vow renewal will get in her way with that claim.
