Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt to take custody battle to trial

"Both parties continue to work together toward a settlement."
The custody trial is said to commence from December 4 and go on for at least three weeks.

Brad and Angelina, who announced their split in September 2016 after four years of marriage and more than 10 years together, share Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

They added to People magazine: "Angelina isn't seeking full custody".

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the estranged couple have requested a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to give them until next June to hash out their divorce with help from a private judge.

The private judge will also have to handle the former couple's property settlement, given they don't have a prenup.

Multiple injured in shooting at California bar, authorities say
The gunman was still believed to be inside the bar an hour later, according to a police official. Another witness said he was at the front door of the bar when the shooter began firing.

His lawyer Lance Spiegel added that Brad "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid child support".

Sources close to the situation told The Blast this week that Pitt feels Jolie, who is fighting for sole custody, is "purely trying to drag him through the mud in the upcoming custody trial" and that Pitt is "worried about the longterm effects it will have on their six children".

Jolie meanwhile was warned by a judge that if she didn't allow her children to foster a relationship with their father she could potentially lose custody.

At the judge's discretion, the "Moneyball" actor and the "Unbroken" director may be able to appear at the trial - which will take place at an as-yet-undecided location - via a telephone link.

The former couple reached a temporary agreement in August after Brad responded to Angie's petition asking for physical custody of their six children.
