Jolie`s lawyer did not say how custody would be shared. The reason Angelina masters primary custody so firmly comes down to her love for children. “She has no problem with Brad spending time with the kids and she`s sure she`s following all the visiting guidelines set by the courts, but she doesn`t want to give up primary custody,” the source told HollywoodLife. “Of course, if the law requires her to give Brad shared custody, she will comply, that`s a no-brainer.” But if that were to happen, “it would be very hard for them, because children are their world.” Jolie`s lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, said earlier about the deal: “A custody agreement was reached a few weeks ago and signed by both parties and the judge. The agreement, based on the recommendations of the child custody assessor, makes a process superfluous. The deposit and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the well-being of the children. Brad must insist that he have a cast-iron guard plan, so that he can develop a regular routine with his children and strengthen their relationships. Our sources say the couple has shared custody in recent years, but this is only a temporary agreement and a final custody agreement remains to be worked out. “He wants 50% of the guard, carved in stone with visit dates and overnight stays.” In addition, the couple still shares their multi-million dollar fortune and has not been able to get along. As we reported, there are a few questions about what will happen to their Miraval estate, purchased in 2011 by the couple for $60 million. In late 2016, Brad requested that all divorce and child custody documents be sealed to the public. In his documents, Brad claimed that Angie was “determined to ignore the well-being of children” by leaving these details made public. Angie`s legal team fired fire by saying Brad was actually “afraid the public would know the truth.” Eventually, Brad and Angie agreed to seal the documents.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reached a final agreement on custody of their six children, Jolie`s lawyer said on Friday after more than two years of often fierce negotiations. Since then, it was not a deliberate decoupling between the two, due to an intense guard feud, while things seemed to have cooled down in recent months. Let`s see where Pitt, 56, and Jolie, 44, have been since they separated in 2016. Friday`s statement did not specify how custody would be shared and Jolie`s spokesman declined to give details. “The role of the DCFS is to ensure that children are in a safe situation,” the statement reads. “As we said earlier this week, the guardians encouraged a legal agreement that was accepted and signed by both parties and that was in the best interests of the children.
