TMZ has learned Jon Gosselin has been ordered to return $180,000 in marital funds, which were removed in violation of an arbitrator's order.

According to Kate's lawyer, Mark Momjian, "The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date."

Jon is required to repay the loot by October 26 -- the next hearing -- or appear before the judge for a contempt proceeding.

The judge also ordered Kate to provide an accounting of past expenses -- also due by Oct. 26.

Kate says, "As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the Court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children. Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as we have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues."

that doesnt add up? kate said on national tv that he took 220K and her lawyer says he ruled jon to put back 180k the Judge apparently said BOTH parties needed to return money withdrawn by the next court date. This Lawyer doesnt always make sense. The judge also asked for them to handle this quietly, which is what Kate obviously doesnt want.

I thought that in the paper Kate's lawyer filed, it showed the date and amount of money that Jon took. The total went from $230,000 to $180,000. Can Kate read? Can her lawyer read?

Does Kate even know when she makes a bill payment? How all of a sudden, Jon goes from taking $230,000 to taking $180,000.

Kate is a liar. She's just upset that Jon had the show stopped.

Kate has trashed Jon too. How could she do this to the father of her children?

It's a shame the kids will pay in other ways, for money their *parents* were paid to exploit them.. Kate is a control freak, Jon is a whiny lowlife with Peter Pan syndrome; both are selfish. They spend way too much on themselves (& Jon on his skank gf) when mo' money should've been put away for the children.

That said, Kate is better than Jon, who is just a piece of sh!t

dumb asses read the story it said "The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date." So if Jon is saying that Kate took $60,000 which obvisiously is $55,000 and the remainder of the $230,000 is $50,000 then their fighting over that and that's what's going to be decided on on the 26th

Don't jump to fast on Kate and the $55,000. She stated that she has the authority to write checks and pay the bills. That monthly she has to give the arbitrator a statement on what she spent the money on. I think what the judge is looking for are proven statements as to everything she has spent because Jon has been accusing her of using it differently. I'm guessing Jon is lying about that also and it will be proven Kate has done the right thing.

I do not believe that Kate wants to do anything in private. Jon may have his problems but Kate is a publicity hound who wants to air all of her sad stories on some TV show. I believe that her goal is to turn the world (including her children) against Jon. I think that private arbitration and a guardian for the children's welfare is very important. And a judge should make sure that both of those things happen.

Jon steals $230K from his soon to be ex wife & his 8 kids & is only ordered so far to pay back $180K? Guess kate is not the only one who has a monthly $50K expense. Thats more than I make in a year. Seriously these people need to get real jobs & join the rest of us in realiy. Poor Gosselins, they make more than the rest of us. Seriously they need to go away.

For heaven's sake quit, just quit blasting Kate for being off in her figures a little bit because when she went on the Today show she had JUST FOUND OUT that Jon had emptied the account & being in shock she forgot to take into account her household and the children's expenses. There is a whole lot of difference between $55,000 & 180K! People read the press releases from TLC. They announced that since the show was in suspension NOBODY was going to get any further paychecks or expenses. Kate does not have any income coming in. The book money and appearance monies and part of the TLC checks ALWAYS went into the children's trusts. She is not hiding money. She HAS taken care of her children. What did Jon spend the 180K on? Himself and Hailey

Harriet for weeks now Jon has appeared on nearly EVERY national TV Entertainment program spouting off about her and slandering her and she has spoken out twice. Once on Larry King & once on the Today show. Jon has made hundreds of interviews both verbal and on film so can you really blame her after all the false statements that Jon has made about her in the past two weeks alone for giving one statement to the media to finally show that Jon has been lying?
