Collin Gosselin – Strained family, controversy

When Collin Gosselin’s parents divorced, his mother Kate was granted ownership of the family home and primary custody of the children. In August 2016 Kate announced that she has enrolled Collin Gosselin at Fairmont Behavioral Health Institute to help him with his "special needs". 

In October 2018 his father Jon filed papers for physical and legal custody of Collin claiming that it would be in the best interest of Collin to live with his father after his release from the Fairmont Behavioral Health Institute. 

After Kate and her attorney failed to appear in court, Jon won the sole physical and legal custody of Collin, who was eventually released from the Institute after 2 years of treatment. 

Collin Gosselin’s sister Hannah also lives with their father Jon while the rest of their siblings live with their mother Kate. Moreover, in August 2019 it was reported that Kate is not trying to win back custody of Hannah and Collin. 

Both Hannah and Collin have limited contact with their mother and their relationship of them with the rest of their siblings is not known.

However, in mid-2020 Collin made shocking allegations against his father calling him a "liar". He also alleged that his father physically abused him.
