Many California parents benefit from mediation when working out custody issues during a divorce or break-up, and the same is true of celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The two stars are currently negotiating a custody agreement for their six children. They are working with an evaluator appointed by the court to review their custody situation. While the actors reached an interim custody agreement in the past, the divorce has been moving forward for over two years, since September 2016.
Jolie, 43, hired a new divorce attorney in September 2018 to represent her interests in the split. The actress' representatives said that she is working on "healing her family" and wants the children to have a reconciliation with their father. The current interim custody agreement was agreed to by Jolie and Pitt after the child custody evaluator made recommendations.
