In spite of an intense custody battle with his estranged spouse, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has recently spent every other day with his six children. This every-other-day visitation arrangement has begun after the recent expiration of the couple’s temporary summer custody agreement. At this time, the couple’s court-ordered custody evaluation has not been completed, so permanent legal arrangements are pending.
Although the children do not spend the night with Pitt, they are spending four hours per day together on school days and 12 hours per day together on nonschool days. The visits are also supervised with the presence of court-approved officials from the Department of Children and Family Services.
Pitt’s children include 14-year-old Pax, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh, and 10-year-old Vivienne and Knox. There is also Maddox, who can choose himself with which parent he’ll spend time as he is currently 17 years of age.
As the custody battle continues, Jolie recently acquired new legal counsel after terminating her previous legal representation in the case. According to Jolie’s spokesperson, she acquired a new attorney with expertise in protecting children and focusing on the best interests of children.
The couple has been divorcing since 2016, when Jolie pursued a divorce after an alleged confrontation between Pitt and his eldest son Maddox. However, the FBI has since cleared Pitt of any charges relating to the alleged confrontation.
