On Wednesday an arbitrator ruled how the former spouses would divide their real estate and other assets.

It won't be Jon's last time in court, however. Last Thursday Dec. 10, Jon was ordered by a Maryland judge to stop making media appearances. TLC claims the reality dad had been violating a contract with the network.

TLC aired the final episode of Jon and Kate Plus Eight Nov. 23.  Kate admitted to the cameras that her new life as a single mom was a struggle. "Don't kid yourself," she said. "When I'm driving to get school supplies with the kids or try on shoes . . . it always crosses my mind that I should be in the passenger seat and Jon should be driving. Every single time."
