Ever since his split from Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt’s time with their six kids has been supervised. Now, HollywoodLife reveals how exactly the actor can use the court-ordered monitor to learn if Angie is really turning the young ones against him or not.
Brad Pitt was very happy to get more and longer visits this summer but amid rumors that his former wife is trying to keep him away from their children, the actor is supposedly fighting back.
Angelina and Brad are set to meet in court for a new hearing on August 21 and the outlet explains via an attorney how it’s possible for the man to get custody.
California Family Law Attorney David T. Pisarra tells HollywoodLife that ‘The use of supervised visitations can be useful for Brad Pitt to prove abuse by Angelina Jolie because an independent third-party can observe what’s going on between the dad and his kids. This third party can report if Brad’s demonstrating appropriate parenting and if the children are having outsized reactions. Brad would be really well-served to have supervised visitation for this reason.’
Pisarra went on to dish that ‘Brad could also ask for a minor’s counsel, which is a lawyer whose job is to interview the children and represent the children’s best interest. If the kids are saying one thing to their parents, but having a completely different reaction to the minor’s counsel, this could be an indicator that they are being coached by one parent. The minor’s counsel could then bring this awareness to the court.’
TMZ was the first to report that Jolie has allegedly been influencing the kids to hate their father and that half of them don’t even want to see him anymore.
