Brad Pitt fighting for joint child custody

Divorcing couples in Maryland may find that nothing about the process is easy. It is emotionally trying and can be financially challenging for some. If children are involved, child custody matters can create a number of issues that only prolong finalizing everything -- such as in the highly publicized divorce between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. This issue seems to be the only thing left with which they must come to terms.

According to reports, Jolie initially filed for divorce back in September following an alleged incident between Pitt and their oldest son on their family plane. Jolie has asked the courts to grant her full custody of the couple's six children with supervised visitation rights for her husband. Pitt has since requested joint custody. Allegations of abuse are still being investigated in this case.

While not every divorce case makes the news like this one, the child custody fight between Pitt and Jolie is something that many divorcing couples in Maryland face every single day. Allegations of abuse can be tough to tackle. As such, those who are accused of committing abuse may have long legal battles before them as they try to fight for the right to be with their children.

For parents in Maryland and elsewhere who choose to divorce, figuring out child custody can be challenging. However, with the assistance of legal counsel, it is possible to fight for the arrangements that one feels is best for his or her family. This may be done through private negotiations or in court, if necessary.
