Child custody: Jolie and Pitt headed back to court

| Mar 18, 2020 | Family Law |

When a high-profile couple files for divorce, details of their personal lives often make headlines. This has been the case for several years now regarding the divorce and child custody hearings between actress Angelina Jolie and her ex, Brad Pitt. Many parents in Pennsylvania may find themselves relating to some of the issues that Jolie and Pitt have had difficulty resolving.

Jolie initially filed for divorce from Pitt after an alleged altercation between Pitt and one of their sons. The family was traveling on an airplane at the time, and Jolie later accused Pitt of being intoxicated and of threatening their son. Since then, the former couple has been in and out of court multiple times regarding custody issues. Pitt admitted he had an alcohol addiction and entered a program to help him overcome it.

Jolie recently told reporters that she would prefer to live abroad with her children. As many Pennsylvania parents can relate, being able to do so as a divorced parent depends on the terms of the court order. In Jolie’s case, she says that, for now, she and her kids must stay in this country because Pitt lives here. However, she also said that when all her children reach age 18, she plans to relocate with them abroad.

The Hollywood star also recently filed a new petition in court, requesting a child custody evaluation of five of her children. When such petitions are filed, it is often because one parent is concerned about the mental health or fitness of the other parent. A concerned parent in Pennsylvania or any other state can return to court as needed if he or she believes a co-parent is placing children at risk.
