The actors' six kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne will "remain" under her custody, while Pitt, who retains their shared legal custody, will have visitation rights, the rep said.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have now reached to an agreement over their six kids, her representative told Us Weekly on Monday, November 7.
"We can confirm that childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago. In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother's custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father," the statement to Us reads. "We are not able to discuss the details. We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time."
The agreement has not yet been filed in the couple's divorce resolution. The statement also did not mention the investigation of the alleged disputes over their flight last September. As per source "closest" to Jolie, the agreement is not brief. "There is no expiration date on the agreement," the insider explains. "The only way for this agreement to change is if both parties agree to a change or Brad must file a completely new motion to go to court."
The statement comes after Pitt, in his response last week to Jolie's September 19 divorce appeal, filed for joint physical and legal custody of the children. (Pitt quoted September 15 as their day of break-up, which is one day after the so-called plane incident.) Jolie has had physical custody of the children before the split, under a voluntarily shared parenting plan agreed to by the actors'. Pitt has since met with his children.
Another source tells Us that Jolie "will retain temporary sole physical custody of the children until the investigations are closed and then they will work out custody from there." However, from a legal source familiar with the case implied any custody agreement was likely an extension of Pitt and Jolie's temporary, voluntary parenting plan.
"This doesn't make sense because Brad filed for joint custody on Friday," the legal source said. "It had to be a temporary extension of the previous voluntary agreement in light of the fact he filed on Friday. His motion was actually filed with the court."
Another source close to Pitt also mentioned that the actor will continue the fight for joint legal and physical custody of the children. "Brad's filing demonstrates that he's going to fight for the kids, his filing shows that he is going to stand firm on sharing custody of the kids. It's a clear sign that he's going to fight for his right for the kids."
"There is still an open investigation going on by the FBI and DCFS, and the results of those investigations will be a factor in determining custody. Brad just wants the level of visitation and amount of custody a parent would have in a normal situation. Once those cases close, either DCFS or the FBI have the option to recommend charges or refer the case to another court."
