Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s custody trial is in less than a month and a lot of fans have been curious to know whether or not the father can win sole custody of their six kids! As a result, one lawyer discussed the details with HollywoodLife.
It is known that the actress allegedly wants sole physical custody of the young ones while Brad just wants 50/50 joint custody. However, what are the chances of him getting what she wants instead?
Attorney David T. Pisarra shared with the outlet that: ‘I would say there is a one percent chance of Angelina getting full custody, just because there is always some chance.’
He went on: ‘But given Brad’s demonstrating ability as a father, as a stable person, as a productive member of society, he is not violent with his kids, I would say we are looking at joint physical custody. Potentially even sole legal custody!’
Pisarra explained why that is possible: ‘I would say [sole legal custody is] more likely to go to Brad based on Angelina’s bad behavior because she is trying to alienate the kids from their dad. It is possible Brad could get sole legal custody just because Angelina’s acting so weird and she has been trying to interfere in Brad’s relationship with the kids.’
As fans may know, the judge who is dealing with the A-listers’ case has already warned Jolie that she might lose her kids if she keeps them away from their dad.
At the time, CNN obtained the court documents that explained why it was important for them to have Brad in their life: ‘If the minors remain closed to their father, depending on the circumstances, it may result in a reduction of the time they spend with their mother and may result in the Court then ordering primary physical custody to the father.’
Pisarra concluded that ‘Even that is frankly, a long shot, and I think what they’ll end up with is some variant of a joint custody plan where the kids spend somewhere between 20-50 percent with Brad, and then joint legal custody so Brad and Angelina both have to agree on schooling and medical care.’
