The handsome TV star also has a son, Chasen Joseph, who decided to follow in his father's footsteps and make a career in film, as well.

Chasen was born in 1991, so he is still green in Hollywood, but the fact that he's equipped with good looks and his father's talent makes his future in the film industry look pretty good for him.

Unfortunately, despite having so many things in common, John and Chasen are on bad terms and are currently not speaking with each other. So what happened in the Schneider family?

How divorce stole kids from John Schneider

In 2014, John's wife, Elvira, filed for divorce, which is still pending. The estranged couple has been through a custody battle and alimony disputes. They share three children together, including Chasen.

Schneider has been late on his alimony so often, that he even had to spend three days in jail due to financial problems. But the biggest tragedy for John is not getting to see his kids:

I’ve been going through a divorce now for four years and it’s awful. The worst part about it is that it’s wedged itself in between my three adult children and myself.

It deeply pains him to be estranged from his children and missing them growing up. According to Schneider:

I never thought, in the vision of my life, [what I never saw] was not having a relationship with my children. It more than hurts. 'Hurt' is a tiny, tiny word. I don't have a word for what that feels like.

Still, John warms the idea that one day he will be able to reconcile with his family and reconnect with his children once again.

John has love in his life

Despite going through a tough divorce, Schneider was able to fall in love again. In 2015, John started a relationship with producer Alicia Allain, who is also his personal manager.

John is over the moon about Alicia, who's been with him through difficult times, and they seem very happy together:

I’m admired, which is a far more important word, I think, than appreciated, and I admire her. I admire her tenacity, her work ethic, her ability to love, and her ability to show love to me, to her parents and those she cares for. I never felt so—gosh, I hate this word, it’s s such a corny word, but it’s true—complete.

We wish John Schneider the best of luck and hope he gets to be close with his children once again.
