Kate filed the application in court last week, at roughly the same time as the emergency petition she filed asking a judge to order Jon Gosselin to return the $235,000 he allegedly emptied from their joint account.
"As this is active litigation, things move quickly," a rep for Kate's attorney, Mark Momjian, tells E! News. "What I can say at this point is that a special relief application seeking injunctive relief was filed on behalf of Kate Gosselin on Oct. 5. Additionally, there is an arbitrator's conference—essentially a status conference—on Tuesday for counsel regarding economic issues."
For his part, Jon's attorney has yet to leak information to ET comment on the move.
