Angelina Jolie is handing off the children to Brad Pitt on a regular basis now, but only because the actress has been ordered to give him a minimum amount of custody while the couple awaits the court’s decision on a permanent order.
The “Maleficent” star was ordered to return to L.A. on July 11, according to documents obtained by The Blast, and until the court hearing on August 21 must let Pitt have at least “four hours every other day on school days and twelve hours every other day on non-school days.”
Jolie has been seen running errands with the children in between them spending time with Pitt.
Next week, a review hearing will take place to put “further interim orders” in place while the entire custody evaluation is completed. The past few months will be extremely interesting for the court to review, especially since Jolie has already been put on notice that if the children “remain closed down to their father,” it could result in a reduction of her custody.
As we reported, Jolie was also ordered to give Pitt the number for all the kid’s cell phones, as well as refrain from monitoring any conversations between the children and their father.
The two stars have been going back and forth regarding money, and next week’s hearing should not only discuss how the children faired this summer, but what a suitable longterm plan is while the two finalize their divorce.
