Kate Gosselin Files for Child & Spousal Support

10/9/2009 6:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kate Gosselin wants Jon to pay up -- in the form of child and temporary spousal support.

Kate filed the legal documents in Montgomery County Court in Pennsylvania last week -- around the same time she filed an emergency petition asking a judge to force Jon to return $230,000 she claims he raided from their joint bank account.

Sources tell TMZ Kate has not asked for a specific amount of child or spousal support.

Kate's lawyer says Jon and Kate are scheduled to meet with a court-appointed arbitrator on Tuesday.

Earlier this week, Kate claimed she couldn't afford to pay the family's bills.

Child support definitely, but spousal support? She makes plenty of money with the show, book deals, TV deals... C'mon, she knows damn well Jon doesn't have enough to support 8 kids. I am getting tired of both of them...

This is an open letter to my ex, Brad.
Brad I am sorry for all the times your child support check was late and I behaved badly.
I am sorry for all the times I was mad when you were late picking up or dropping off the kids.
I am sorry for all the bad times we had during our divorce.
Seeing how this (there are no words bad enough to describe this man) fool acts makes me realize how good of a father you are.
And you are a great father not like this tool at all. He gives fathers everwhere who are working their butts off to support their kids a bad name.
So to all you dads out there who are doing such a great job, we mothers thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Even if the marriages failed, you did not fail your children. And that Jon Gosselin is what you have done, FAILED YOUR CHILDREN.

whats up Doctors    

I say Jon gets the kids,and the Child and Spousal support. She's is the one that started all this crap,and needs some heavy duty Prozac to start. She is one CRAZY BIATCH, to go TV and loose her mind in front of America, Some things you just want to tell someone (your counselor) in private. Not have a breakdown on prime time TV.and tell all your business to the world.

They are both failures as parents and their kids should be taken away from them forever.

She doesnt need child or spousal support.

I'm surprised that no one else sees that Jon has fetal alocohol syndrome. Just look at his eyes. They are too far apart. That's the most obvious sign of "f.a.s.". Then, there's the odd behavior.........
