Angelina Jolie may lose custody of children24.05.2022
The divorce of this star couple in 2016 caused a lot of excitement among their fans. However, the parents of many children did not manage to disperse peacefully. As often happens in such cases, the most difficult time for the former spouses is now beginning – the ongoing battle for child custody.
Angelina Jolie is at risk of losing sole custody of her six children due to the fact that she does not allow their father, Brad Pitt , to see them for an extended period of time. According to court documents, this could happen very soon if the actress doesn’t get over her differences with her ex-husband.
The divorce judge noted “the importance of a healthy and strong relationship for each of the six children with both mother and father.” In court documents, he also added:
“If underage children do not have enough contact with the father, depending on the circumstances, this can lead to a reduction in the time they spend with Jolie, as well as to deprive her of sole parental rights and place the children in full custody of the father.”
The judge also outlined some specific steps Jolie needs to take to mend Pitt’s relationship with the kids. For example, she was asked to provide the actor with each child’s mobile phone number and allow him to call them at any time. At the same time, Angelina is forbidden to read the correspondence of children with her father or secretly monitor his calls.
The court also set out a detailed schedule of summer visits for each parent. Maddox, 16, was not included in the agreement because the court decided he was old enough to decide for himself how much time to spend with his father.
According to this schedule, from June 8 to 17, Brad Pitt will spend four hours a day with the children while he is in London, where his ex-wife rents a house and is filming the second part of Maleficent. A father with many children has the right to see one or two minor children at a time and will be able to spend time with each child at least twice during this period. Jolie is not allowed to be present when Pitt communicates with children.
Then from June 27 to July 1, the actor receives custody for 10 hours a day under the same scheduling conditions. At this time, a child psychologist will also be with him and the children, watching them. From July 8 to July 14, the actor will spend four days in a row with the children. A psychologist will also be present during this time and will meet with the children before and after Pitt’s allotted time in July.
From July 21 to July 29, the actor receives custody of the children when he returns to California. Angelina will be moving the kids from London to Los Angeles, and Brad will head back to London. Back in Los Angeles, Pitt will be able to decide where to meet with the children, but he must arrange his visits in advance with psychologists.
Angelina Jolie, 43, who has sole custody of her six children, has been ordered by a judge to allow Pitt to see her children regularly while filming in the UK this summer. And when the children are with Brad, the actress is supposed to make one phone call a day at a time agreed upon by both parties.
Recall that the desire to divorce the actress appeared due to fear for the safety of children. It was rumored that Angelina was tired of Brad’s abuse of soft drugs and alcohol. In addition, it seemed to the actress that the ex-husband did not control his anger, which could be dangerous for children.
For now, the court believes that when Maddox, Pax, Knox, Zahara, Shiloh and Vivienne are with their father, they are safe. And at this stage, it is especially important that each of their children have a healthy and strong relationship with both parents.
We hope that the former spouses will overcome all difficulties for the sake of children. And their relationship will not become an endless battlefield.
