Actor Brad Pitt hopeful new ruling will allow more parenting time

California residents are likely used to seeing headlines full of celebrity drama. Hollywood remains the heart of the global film and television industry, and people around the world like to keep up with their favorite stars.  Sometimes fans feel as if they can relate when big time stars face real world issues. The once iconic couple that is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have recently found themselves splashed across media outlets as the story unfolds about their heated custody dispute, in which Pitt claims he is being denied adequate parenting time by Jolie. 

The former couple shares six children ranging in age from 16 to 9, three of whom are adopted, while the other three are the biological children of Pitt and Jolie. Since the pair entered divorce proceedings over two years ago, they have not yet been able to reach a permanent custody agreement for their children.  Since the couple separated, Jolie has had the children with her most of the time. She has been hesitant to allow the children to have time with their father, and has been accused of attempting to turn the children against him. 

Pitt wanted to change the current arrangement, and sought action in a court of law. The judge agreed that it would be contrary to the best interest of the children to deny more time with their father, and has warned Jolie that failing to allow the children more access to Pitt could result in loss of custody on her part. Though Jolie currently resides in Europe and Pitt in California, the judge ruled that the parents will split time with each parent over the summer, and that Pitt shall be allowed to contact the children by phone at any time. 

When a child custody dispute arises between two parents, it can be difficult to determine the appropriate amount of parenting time for each. Many times, it can be helpful to seek assistance from an attorney experienced in handling child custody proceedings. An attorney can help a parent present his or her case in family court, and ensure that any children involved will no longer be caught in the middle of uncertainty and discord.
