A lawyer for Kate Gosselin says she gets the family home in eastern Pennsylvania in the no-fault divorce agreement entered Friday and first reported by TMZ.com.
Lawyer Mark Momjian (MAHM'-jee-in) says Kate Gosselin will continue as the primary caretaker of the reality TV couple's twins and sextuplets.
A spokesman says Jon's lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, is traveling and not available for comment.
Momjian says the Gosselins worked out custody arrangements but let an arbiter decide financial issues. He says Kate is relieved and excited about restructuring her life.
The family home is about 50 miles northwest of Philadelphia in Wernersville.
