The bitter legal battle between Jon and Kate Gosselin is still going on and a lawyer representing their sextuplets has asked a judge to let the divided siblings see each other.

The attorney asked that the kids have regular four-hour visits, according to court documents filed last year, which have now been obtained by The Sun.

Kate has full custody of Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden, who are all 15 years old, while her former husband has custody of Hannah and Collin, which he obtained on April 5, 2018 and at "a later date."

Jon explained that the kids' lawyer was appointed by the court to help make decisions during times of dispute between their parents.

The sextuplets are fighting to keep their regular visits, but Kate's attorney shrugged the request off, stating that they were "three-hour" visits and that the parties involved had not "talked about that at all."

Upon further deliberation, the judge said a third agreement would be put in place to handle the request.

"In terms of the visitation, we’ve had some recent contact with the kids, visitation with the kids," the judge said.

"The Court wants or agrees we’re going to create a third agreement, essentially how we want to handle that going forward."

The judge further urged the parties to "find peace somewhere there."

Last year Kate Gosselin was found in contempt of court for filming four of her underage children for a television series without proper work permits, according to DailyMailTV.

She was ordered to pay $1,500 in legal fees to Jon after defying a court order requiring her to have legal paperwork in place before filming could commence for the October special of "Jon and Kate Plus 8."

Jon first took the matter to court after Kate failed to adhere to a previous court order requiring her to provide a full filming schedule before the project continued. In the meantime, the Department of Labor had allegedly denied filming permits for the children. No permits were issued but this did not stop Kate and the network from proceeding with the episode.

Alexis, Aaden, Leah and Joel appeared on camera for the episode without the legal paperwork and Kate was ordered to cover the legal fees and placed under strict conditions for any future filming.
Commenting on the ordeal, Jon said he did not think Kate would ever film again.

"If they do film, then Kate has agreed with this order, it was signed by a judge - so if she doesn't comply, if she films the kids without permission again, she will go to jail," he said. "I really just want to get my kids off the television period."
