In 2016, Jon said his and Kate's custody agreement allows him to see only four of their children at once, during weekly dinners and overnights every other weekend. Twins Cara and Mady told People that they had decided not to spend time with their dad.

For the past couple of years, Jon has posted birthday tributes to the twins, with throwback photos of the two, who are college-bound soon.

Jon had also said in 2016 that he has not seen his and Kate's son Collin in about a year and a half and that she does not answer his texts about him. Collin is enrolled in a program away from home. Jon said the boy "seemed fine" to him the last time he saw him, calling him "really smart" and being "incredibly intuitive."

Kate did not comment. She had said that their son has "special needs" and suffers from "educational and social challenges."
