Pitt and Jolie settle high-net worth child custody dispute

California parents who decide to divorce but who also happen to disagree on critical issues involving their children often have to battle things out in court. In a high-net worth child custody dispute, such as that which Hollywood superstars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been entangled in for several years, things can get quite complicated, especially if one or both parents make accusations that the other is unfit. Pitt and Jolie have gone to court numerous times to try to resolve their differences.  

Updates on the situation were recently published, stating the former couple has finally agreed on a co-parenting plan; therefore, no trial will be necessary. Past reports had suggested that Jolie was determined to go to trial to seek physical custody of her children. Some say it was Pitt's personal persuasion that convinced her to settle out of court.  

Prior to now, Pitt had been having monitored interaction with his kids, which some say amounted to visits every other day, approximately four hours per day when they were in school and as many as 12 hours per visit on weekends. Pitt is said to have asked Jolie to consider the children's best interests, noting that a trial may have long-lasting psychological effects on them. Jolie has since agreed to a joint physical and legal custody parenting plan.  

This high-net worth child custody case has been detailed in the media; however, there are many California parents who are not Hollywood stars but are facing similar problems in their personal lives. An experienced family law attorney can be a great asset to any parent with concerns about custody, visitation or child support. An attorney can help negotiate an out-of-court settlement but is also prepared to litigate divorce-related issues, as needed.
