The custody battle continues

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have agreed to preserve the privacy of their children and family by keeping all documents confidential.

Jolie and Pitt battle over the custody of their children

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have surely been all over the news the past few months in a heated divorce case. The couple got married in August 2014 but were together for years before that. The sparks flew between the couple during the filming of the movie "Mr & Mrs. Smith," where the duo's love affair sparked shortly after.

However, their love has made a complete turn around and it seems unrepairable. This past Monday, January 9th, 2017, the two finally reached a divorce agreement. Currently, Angelina Jolie is still seeking physical custody while Brad Pitt, on the other hand, has requested joint custody. The agreement in place as of now is that Pitt and Jolie have an informal custody arrangement.

Jolie has physical custody of the six children and Pitt has supervised visits.

It will be interesting to see how the court rules this one. Pitt filed documents recently that said Angelina Jolie "is determined to ignore even agreed upon standards relating to the children's best interest." Pitt also remarked that Angelina has "no self-regulating mechanism" in terms of the protection of their six children.
