While Jolie, 43, is ordered to keep her distance during Pitt's time with the children, there will be a child therapist present when Pitt - who was investigated for child abuse shortly after his 2016 split from Jolie, but was later cleared - spends time with the kids.
"It is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother".
Angelina Jolie is dangerously close to losing primary physical custody of her and Brad Pitt's six children if she doesn't switch up the how she lets the kids interact with dad. "She has no more choice in the matter, so she feels a bit helpless, and a loss of control". She also must arrange a call between the kids and their doctors so it can be explained to them that "the court has determined that each of them are safe with their father".
The documents outline a summer schedule, detailing when Brad will be allowed to see the kids.
Some are wondering, how long will this drama go on? Pitt will spend time with each child at least twice during this period and will designate one or two of the children for each visit in advance.
From the documents cited by The Blast, it appears that the actress, director and humanitarian is not cooperating as much as she should in allowing Pitt to spend time with their kids this summer or in letting them have cell phone and text message contact with him that she's not monitoring.
Because Maddox is older, he will get to decide how much time he spends with his father.
When the children are with Jolie, Pitt will be allowed to call each child's cell phone when he wants, and Jolie must provide him with each child's cell phone number.
The couple initially separated in a nasty, high-profile breakup in September 2016.
The court has also laid out a summer schedule for the children. He will then get four consecutive days with his children from July 8 through July 14. Jolie is responsible for the children traveling back to Los Angeles, and Pitt will be responsible for getting them back to London.
California law favors joint custody in divorce cases, although final arrangements are often agreed to by parents and formalized in a written agreement.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt attend the 15th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on January 9, 2015. The judge also requested that the calls and texts not be monitored by Jolie.
