After everyone was shocked by the news of Brad Pritt and Angelina Jolie separating, the next step was the legal process. The experience of going through a divorce is never pleasant, but it is the children that have to suffer the most. Young children struggle to comprehend the change in their household. Or, why they have to visit each parent at a different location. So, most people are curious to know what will happen with custody of the children.
According to Jolie’s representatives, an agreement has been made that will allow Jolie to have custody over their six children. The party went on to say that the children will continue to have therapeutic visitation with their father. Childcare professionals believe that this decision is in the best interest of the children.
Although one source believes that the agreement does not have an expiration date, it is possible that there could be modifications, depending on the children’s best interest. At the same time, Brad Pitt’s party has announced that no actual custody agreement has been made. The sources say the recent agreement was only an extension of their temporary agreement. This agreement is voluntary and only temporary. This means that there is no permanent custody agreement.
This past Friday, The Los Angeles Superior Court received paperwork from Brad Pitt, seeking physical and joint custody of the couple’s six children. Since the divorce was made public, Angelina and Brad have said very little about the situation. What they did announce was that their children’s well-being was first priority. When the divorce was filed, Brad Pitt stated, “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids.” Brad made sure to stress to reporters that they be kind of enough to give the children the space that they deserve.
