After nearly two years of divorce proceedings, Brad Pitt has finally won a major victory in his battle with Angelina Jolie for custody of their six children. In court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com, Judge Ouderkirk has ordered that the celebrity couple's kids spend significant time with their father this summer!
The papers reveal the children’s detailed schedule with Brad this summer, which will take place in both L.A. and the U.K., where Angelina is filming the Maleficent sequel. Between June 8 and July 17, at least one of the couple’s younger kids — Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, or twins Knox and Vivienne, 9 — will spend four hours per day with Brad.
From June 27 to July 1, Brad will get to spend ten hours with at least one of the children per day. Then between July 8 and July 14, Brad will have custody of the younger children for a four-day period.
On July 21, the children will stay with Brad at his Los Angeles home and return to the U.K. on the 29th. On August 11, the kids will once again travel to L.A. to spend time with Brad. A review hearing will take place the week of August 13.
Left out of the mandatory visits is Angelina and Brad’s oldest son Maddox, 16. According to the papers, Maddox’s “preference” will be “primary” in determining his arrangements with Pitt, due to his “age and maturity.”
In the documents, the judge said that Angelina had to tell her children “that the court has determined that not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them, the court has determined that it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother.”
