The 43-year-old actress now has primary custody over the six children - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - she has with her estranged husband, but according to new court papers, she could lose that custody arrangement the Fight Club star doesn't spend more time with his brood.
However, the judge sent a strong word of caution to Jolie, saying "not having a relationship with their father is harmful" to all of the children, and adding "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother".
The judge said it was "critical" all the children had a "healthy and strong relationship" with both parents, and that Jolie must let Pitt fix and maintain his bond with them.
According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Pitt will be spending a lot more quality time with Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9. Pitt will host one or two of the minor at a time, and will spend time with each child at least twice. The therapist will meet with the children before and after each two-day period. It is Jolie's responsibility to fly them to LA, and he will fly them back to London.
- During this period, Pitt should be able to designate one or two of his children to spend time with, and Jolie is barred from being present during these times.
How the Hill Reacted to the Trump-Kim Summit
He said the United States is working on the issue with South Korea , and Japan-as well as with China, but "to a lesser extent". In a statement sent to the BBC, she said: "Our alliances remain ironclad, and ensure peace and stability in the region".
In 2016, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, around the same time he was accused of a child abuse incident while on board a private plane which he was eventually cleared of.
In an attempt to further improve access, the court has ordered Jolie to give Pitt the mobile phone numbers of each child so he can call them anytime.
California law favors joint custody in divorce cases, although final arrangements are often agreed to by parents and formalized in a written agreement. A child therapist will also be with the children during this time.
Pitt was cleared of allegations of child abuse by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services in November 2016.
From the documents cited by The Blast, it appears that the actress, director and humanitarian is not cooperating as much as she should in allowing Pitt to spend time with their kids this summer or in letting them have cell phone and text message contact with him that she's not monitoring. "She will come out to L.A.to visit him this summer as he is filming, but she has a life of her own in Boston".
Jolie can only call once a day when the kids are with the actor.
