Attorneys to both movie stars have been in serious negotiations since September 2016, after Jolie filed for divorce, 2 years into their marriage, citing irreconcilable differences and "the health of the family" after 12 years of being together.
"Trial on the bifurcated issue of custody is to begin on December 4, 2018", court documents read. Pitt wants joint custody of the kids while Jolie wants sole custody. Brad's legal team isn't too anxious about that, though, seeing that the actor was never criminally charged with anything.

Financial disputes will be resolved separately. In addition to the former couple's disagreement over custody, it seems that their divorce proceedings will run into a speedbump regarding property settlement.
As reported before, a judge ruled in June that Angelina should let Brad spend more time with their children, or she would risk losing custody.
But days later, the Fight Club star argued he had "loaned" his estranged wife $8 million to help her purchase her current house and contributed over $1.3 million "in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children".More news: Earth's ozone layer is finally healing, UN says
