A judge in Jolie and Pitt's divorce case stated that the children "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", and added that "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother".
The court laid out specific dates and hours that Jolie, 43, must make her younger children available to their father, 54, this summer: both in London, where she is shooting "Maleficent 2", and in Los Angeles.
In an attempt to further improve access, the court has ordered Jolie to give Pitt the mobile phone numbers of each child so he can call them anytime.
"With Ange set to film the Maleficent sequel in the United Kingdom over the northern summer, the outlet reports that Brad will have access to the five younger kids for "four hours a day from June 8 - 17 in London", adding that "[Brad] must spend time with each child at least twice during the 10-day period with one of the [family] psychologists present.
As for 16-year-old Maddox, he'll get to decide on his own how much time he wants to spend with dad. Pitt must spend time with each child at least twice during the 10-day period, with one of the psychologists present.
From June 8 to June 17, Pitt will receive custody for four hours each day while he stays in London, where Jolie is renting a home. But Jolie and Pitt seemed to bury the hatchet in January 2017, releasing a joint statement saying they had agreed to handle their divorce in a private forum and would work together to reunify their family. When he returns to LA, Pitt will have custody of the kids from July 21-29.
In some ways, the globe-trotting Jolie has come to resent Pitt for "essentially forcing her to settle down in Los Angeles with the kids", Us Weekly reported in May. News. 'Brad will be filming in LA for the summer and wants to see the kids on his regular custody schedule.
The source told the outlet that 'Angelina has been in London and is free to travel for shorter periods of time, ' as 'Brad isn't opposed to that. but she can't leave with the kids for several months'.
Following their split, Pitt was investigated by multiple agencies after Jolie alleged that he had a drinking problem and was abusive to their children.
Pitt was cleared of allegations of child abuse by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services in November 2016.
