Brad Pitt is no stranger to the big screen. The famous actor has starred in many movies over the years, earning his spot as a Hollywood icon. Frequently seen at star-studded events, Pitt has become a tabloid favorite, even more so in light of his recent legal woes. Pitt stands as a reminder that even the rich and famous must endure the struggles and stress that can come from divorce and child custody issues.
Many people may not be aware that Pitt is a Missouri native. He worked his way to fame and fortune over the course of several decades. Years ago, when he wed actress Angelina Jolie, it seemed as if a happy ending was on the horizon. Unfortunately, the couple’s marriage ended, and now the stars find themselves embroiled in a bitter child custody dispute.
Jolie initially indicated that Pitt was not a good parent, and was awarded primary custody of the couple’s children. Recently, however, a judge decided the children should split their summer between both parents. By all reports, Pitt made a genuine effort to ensure his children felt safe and loved, and he is now hopeful that a permanent order will be put into place, allowing the former couple to share joint custody of the children.
Child custody issues can seem overwhelming. If a Missouri parent is concerned that they may need help presenting his or her side of a custody case, it makes good sense to partner with an experienced attorney. A lawyer can help a client negotiate a fair parenting agreement that is truly in the best interests of any children involved.
