Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s nasty custody war is about to heat up. The two are set to appear in court to discuss the custody of their six children right before the holiday season. The court date comes months after the pair agreed to a temporary arrangement that awarded Pitt more time with his kids.
Pitt and Jolie are scheduled to appear before a temporary judge in the Superior Court of Los Angeles on Dec. 4. The two have been feuding over the custody of their brood ever since Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.

The A-listers were together for over a decade and share six kids: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.
“Trial on the bifurcated issue of custody is to begin on December 4, 2018,” court documents read.
Judge John Ouderkirk will oversee the upcoming court trial. Ouderkirk has been involved in Pitt and Jolie’s divorce case for quite some time and is contracted to work on the case through the summer of 2019.
According to Radar Online, the court documents revealed that Jolie and Pitt are splitting the court costs until the divorce is settled. Jolie is looking for full custody of the kids while Pitt is fighting for joint.
There is no telling when the custody dispute will be settled, but these types of trials usually last a few weeks. After that, Ouderkirk will issue a judgement on the matter.

The custody battle is only a part of the divorce settlement. The pair still needs to work out the financial elements of the divorce, including what they plan on doing with their multiple properties. Jolie and Pitt did not sign a prenup when they got married, which makes everything more complicated.
With Ouderkirk scheduled to work through 2019, we can only hope that the divorce is finalized before next summer.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have not commented on the latest development in their custody war.
