The 43-year-old actress’s attorney filed legal documents requesting that the judge issue a final divorce decree this year. According to TMZ, the documents state that Pitt has not paid ‘meaningful child support’ since they first separated almost two years ago. The ‘informal arrangement’ agreed between the two, Jolie’s lawyer states, has not been followed by Pitt however a source familiar with the situation tells Metro.co.uk that ‘Brad fulfills his commitments’. Jolie wants the judge in charge of their case to issue formal child support orders retroactively against him.
Angelina’s spokesperson Mindy Nyby denied earlier claims by TMZ that her lawyer Laura Wasser, who has been with her since filing for divorce from Brad, quit because the Maleficent actress was being ‘hostile.’ In a statement released to Entertainment Tonight, she said: ‘I just spoke with Laura. The TMZ story is not true and she is not quitting now or in the future.’ The divorce proceedings are almost at the two year mark, and according to a source, a major part of the delay is finding a custody agreement that works for both actors. A source told E News: ‘Brad and Angelina are not even close to settling their divorce. They are so hung up on dealing with the custody issues that they haven’t even exchanged any financial documents yet, which is routine in divorces and one of the first steps people take in the filing process.’
They add: ‘There will be no settlement or resolution anytime soon. They are kind of at an impasse.’ The pair have been at odds over the custody of their five children Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox (Maddox is 17 years of age and can choose who to spend time with). Earlier this year the pair clashed over Angelina’s wish to take the children to Europe whilst she was shooting Maleficent 2 – a move Pitt opposed.
A source told E! News: ‘Brad will be filming in L.A. for the summer and wants to see the kids on his regular custody schedule.’ ‘He’s not OK with his kids being away for months,’ they added. ‘He feels that Los Angeles is their home base and this is where it is best for them to be. ‘Angelina has been in London and is free to travel for shorter periods of time. Brad isn’t opposed to that. But she can’t leave with the kids for several months.’ Angelina Jolie’s rep has been contacted for comment.
