Pitt and Jolie set aside custody issues for holiday gathering

One of the more compelling celebrity stories of 2016 is that of Brad Pitt's and Angelina Jolie's very public divorce. And child custody issues are a key component of the drama which included allegations of child abuse leveled against Mr. Pitt. Although Mr. Pitt was cleared of these charges, he currently is only allowed to visit the couple's six children with a therapist present.

Recently, however, the famous pair was able to temporarily table their differences so that Mr. Pitt could spend time with the children during the holidays for what an insider described as a "gift exchange." Still, Mr. Pitt has stated his disapproval of the manner in which he claims Ms. Jolie has been making the details of the custody battle public. 

While both sides feel they have good reasons for acting the way they are, it is a shame that the custody battle had to become the subject of such public scrutiny. But this is what can happen when two very famous people have an acrimonious split. However, perhaps we can all learn something from this situation; when working out a custody agreement, it is important for parents to try to stay focused on the best interests of the child.

And if you and your ex-spouse simply cannot discuss terms without becoming emotional, it is likely best to have an experienced family law attorney act on your behalf. You see, if you and your ex cannot come to terms, a judge will set the terms for you. Since you understand your child's needs better than anyone else, working out an amicable agreement is in everyone's best interests.
