A Pennsylvania judge made the decision on Tuesday after the reality star's ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, and her lawyer did not show up for the scheduled court appearance.
Earlier this week, Kate had asked for the hearing to be postponed, but her request was denied, according to UsWeekly, who was first to report the news. ET has reached out to Jon and his lawyer for comment.
Jon saw Collin for the first time in three years last month when the teen, who has reportedly been enrolled in a schooling program for children with special needs, paid a visit home.
A source close to Jon told ET at the time that Collin was "doing great."
"It took a while to get here, but things are all coming together," the source added. "Jon just wants to have his family back, and live his life."
