Just two weeks after filing for primary custody of his eight children, Jon & Kate Plus 8 star, Jon Gosselin, has announced his decision to fire his lawyer, Anthony F. List. According to Jon, the lawyer who called Kate “an absentee parent” is no longer representing him or authorized to speak to the press on his behalf. Keep reading for the latest details on Jon and Kate’s custody battle and how they’re moving forward…

Another week, another dispute for former Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars, Jon and Kate Gosselin. The divorced couple is now battling for custody of their eight children. On April 7, Jon Gosselin filed papers with a Pennsylvania judge seeking full custody of the couple’s eight children and a review of the child support order which requires him to pay $20,000 per month. Speaking on Jon’s behalf at the time was lawyer, Anthony F. List who called Kate “an absentee parent.” He also said, ”Kate Gosselin can’t have it both ways unless there is some balance, unless there are some opportunities for these eight children to be in her physical presence. Jon wants to spend time with these kids, and she is throwing up roadblocks. And the eight children are the innocent victims. This tears Jon up.”

On April 15, a week after filing the custody papers, Jon Gosselin fired List as his lawyer. ”Mr. Anthony List Sr., Esq. is not my representing attorney; I terminated him on April 15, 2010. He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf,” Jon tweeted Thursday. “Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably.”

Kate, who was recently eliminated from ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, refutes Jon’s allegations that she’s anything less than a devoted working mother.”The truth is, moms work. Single moms work. I travel and work. That’s my job, and I’m very fortunate and grateful to have a job,” she said while a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. “When work comes my way, I do it, so I can literally put food on the table and send my kids to school.”

    Yes… but kate U have 8 children .. not 1,2 or 3..your have 8 children and must be a 24 hours job especially with such very,very young children U have.

    The tons of money U make from TLC for 5 seasons should be more than enough to feed them for years to come. Children at their age don’t need a fancy lifestyle..just a harmonious,well lobed,peaceful,stable and safe home.

    Perhaps U should be mom working from home…open a daycare centre or even write children story books from the comfort of your home. U don’t need to be an internationally well known mother of 6 who find it so hard to make ends meet (for uoit info..there are million much latger family in this world that live fine and raise healthy, successful children amidst their economic hardships.

    U need to heal spiritually Kate and U must find your way home before its too late.
