Angelina Jolie, a star from the movie "Maleficent" is still fighting for her kid's custody after filing a divorce with her husband Brad Pitt. Pitt who is currently filing a joint legal and physical custody for their six children as a response to Angelina's divorce filing case. Angelina Jolie request a sole custody for Brad Pitt's visitation rights that can be a result of a complicated battle between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
Divorce attorney Christopher Melcher said that Brad Pitt's filing response is not really a formal request for custody order but an expression of intent, therefore, Brad Pitt isn't prepared to let Jolie has a sole custody. People stated that Angelina Jolie checks for sole custody while Brad Pitt checks for joint custody. This only means that another party is basically giving notice of what their intent is, Melcher said.
Filing a response to Jolie is also a move to show that Pitt has receive the divorce papers and wants to participate in defending himself to the case. Melcher said that it isn't a good sign for ongoing divorce negotiations where another party gives an open-ended extension so they can make things work out quietly. But this settlement negotiation may break down or maybe Jolie is going to insist that Pitt files a response for the case.
The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services have their investigations continue of Pitt's claim that he was verbally and physically abusive towards the children. The Legal source who has knowledge of the situation told PEOPLE and DCFS that they're still looking for a history or pattern behavior. They're looking for the original inciting incident or anything related, and looking for any relevant history while the family is still in the therapy process.
When Pitt is cleared by the DCFS and filed a response to his divorce petition, it suddenly appeared that the custody battle will make things worse. According to Perez Hilton, there are recent reports that Jolie has this recordings that will greatly embarrass the A-lister. They believe that the said audio tapes will be absolutely a big bang against her, but Jolie's team seem absolutely hell-bent trying to discredit Pitt in order to stop him from getting the full custody of the children.
