Jon & Kate

Plus DIVORCED

12/18/2009 12:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... It's official -- Jon & Kate Gosselin are divorced.

Jon & Kate
Judge Arthur Tilson
has signed the final papers, making Jon and Kate officially single.

Mark Momjian
, Kate's lawyer, tells TMZ, under the agreement, "Our client will continue to reside with all eight of her children in the former marital home."

As for Kate, she says, "I am very relieved that our divorce has been finalized, and I look forward to the New Year, focusing on our children." Kate calls the divorce "challenging," and says she will now focus on "restructuring our lives."

A rep for Jon tells us, "While the arbitration proceedings are still a work in progress, Jon and Kate will remain binded in their commitment to their eight wonderful children. Jon is confident that he and Kate will be able to move forward in a fashion that will be in the best interest of the Gosselin family."

As for who got what, Momjian simply says, "We are very pleased with the final outcome."

Judge Tilson inked the docs after the arbitrator came down with his ruling on how Jon and Kate's property will be divided.

yeah....and?    

Well, I wonder if they had it all to do again if they would have thrown the producer from that stuipd reality show out of their house?

Would they still be a couple, I suspect yes. Then all of America would not be able to sit around and discuss how mean I am, how selfish, who is the bigger victim, all the paps chasing them down, all the talk show nonsense, even CNN for Pete's sake got in on it...

They both will NEVER have a normal life. And.....the cherry on the Sundae?

THEY DRUG THEIR CHILDREN INTO IT!!! They also will suffer forever from being on that stuipd show.

What good ever comes out when one is on a Reality Show? Zero form where I sit.

I don't know how anyone could be cheering for either of these people. Divorce is never fun and whether it is on good terms or bad terms, no one wins!!! They may both be saying they are happy it is finally over, but deep down inside, they can see how they have each ripped this family apart. Here it is the holidays and people are happy that a divorce is final? Are you kidding me? What about the kids? They are the ones that are most affected by this!!!!

I can not believe how evil people can be about someone they don't even know. Jon will be acting out in some way today for attention. No matter how foolish he gets Kate will be to blame? Really ...go read a good book for entertainment.

CONGRATULATIONS! Jon, you are finally rid of the possum headed ostrich brained featherless, flightless cucoo-dodo. Don't worry, your children will always remember and love their daddy, that is, unless brain washing is involved. In that case, just be happy. Be careful that the next bimbo you hook up with has all her marbles. Congrats again Jon....wishing you all the best in the future.

Where are all of Jon's fans who have maintained he would fight for his children? Never wanted them, can't stand to even stay in the house with them. Maybe Hary Hart will leave her husband and go with Jon and they can slobber all over each other. Every story that is run is fake. Why are Hailey and Jon living in New York, but the promotions are in Pa? Fake, fake. Has Heller sung his little old lady in the shoe song? Real cute.

I am happy for kate she can finally get her life back on track! Jon the dirt bag got what was coming to him, 5 figures in child support and tlc stopping him from getting other jobs he did it to him self.
Kate has been the adult through all of this and she is doing a great job with her kids she deserves to be happy and I hope she finds love again and I hope she finds someone who will love her kids! At least now she is rid of her ex and she can move on! Go Kate!
