After initially requesting more time  to work out their divorce and custody terms, the former couple has reached a custody agreement.

 

“A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge,” Jolie’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, told ET in a statement. “The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial. The filing and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children.”

 

A source close to the matter confirmed that Jolie is “pleased to be entering the next stage and relieved at the progress for the health of their family.”

Earlier this week, the estranged twosome asked for an extension for the appointment of a private temporary judge, Honorable John Ouderkirk, according to court documents filed on Wednesday.

 

A custody trial regarding the couple’s six children was scheduled to begin, in private and presided over by Ouderkirk, on Dec. 4, with Ouderkirk working with the couple on reaching custody settlements until June 30, 2019.
