The old judgment is for child support in the amount of $132,875.

Kate first filed the judgment in March 2018.

RadarOnline reported at the time that Jon had tried to challenge the judgment, calling Kate’s claim an “inappropriate amount” of money in court documents.

Jon asked the court to overturn the judgment, as Kate’s request “harms the welfare and goes against the best interests of minor children”.

Kate’s filing to enforce the judgment now comes after Jon accused her of stealing $100,000 from their own children.


Jon previously claimed to The US Sun that Kate took more than $100,000 from bank accounts belonging to their eight children.

He said he could not keep quiet about the missing money any longer – and demanded that she pay back the money she owes Hannah and Collin, as well as the other children, if she didn’t. not already done.

He told the US Sun: “It’s disgusting and it’s morally wrong.

“Parents are not supposed to withdraw money from these accounts without permission and without writing up paperwork saying they will pay it back – but she has produced no paperwork and no payment has been made.

“You can’t just live off your kids’ money.”


He added: “It disgusts me. She went on TV to tell the world that she saved her children’s money when she was actually stealing from them – she’s a hypocrite.

“She had no remorse from him. Now that they’re 18, she thinks she can get away with it.”

The former TLC star said he noticed a large amount of money seemed to be missing from his children Hannah and Collin’s trust accounts when he won custody of the two children in 2018.

The former couple set up a trust account for the children to protect their earnings from appearances and promotional activities until they turn 18.

The account offered children tax breaks on their savings, and any loan could only be made with the permission and documentation needed to repay it.


Questioned in court the following year, Kate admitted she had withdrawn two batches of $50,000 from the children’s trust, adding: ‘I will have to keep borrowing to survive,’ according to explosive court documents.

In the court filing, Kate claimed the assets were used to “meet her and the children’s expenses”.

However, that same year, Kate had purchased a $750,000 lakeside home in North Carolina with a swimming pool.

Jon said Kate never returned the money to the children, according to accounts he has for the children who were in his care – Hannah and Collin.

Kate’s lawyer declined to comment when asked about the claims at the time.

In the testimony, which has never been made public, Kate also said she borrowed money from a company she owned jointly with the children to furnish the new house.

This despite admitting in her court testimony that she was a “TV personality, author and registered nurse” who earned $40,000 per episode for her TLC show Kate Plus Dates, which aired in the summer of 2018. for a six-episode season.

She also confirmed that she had no work in 2019 – other than completing a shoot for which she had already been paid – and that she was paying her bills with “a lot of hope and a lot of prayers” as well as the ” ready” children. trusts.

Kate’s attorney, Richard J. Puleo, responded to the claims in a statement to Us Weekly: “Kate’s integrity is impeccable. I can’t say the same for Jon Gosselin.
