It is difficult to predict how contentious matters will be resolved when issues regarding children arise during divorce in Washington state. A high-profile couple from another state, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, has been drawing much media attention as attempts are made to come to terms with divorce and forge agreeable solutions to problems concerning future parenting plans. The situation has been complicated by the fact that Jolie has accused Pitt of child abuse.
As Hollywood stars, Pitt and Jolie no doubt will have to negotiate many issues concerning their assets, children and other family and business-related matters. Many couples in similar situations have solid prenuptial agreements in place to prevent certain problems from arising when marriages end in divorce. With regard to issues concerning children, obtaining amicable solutions may be difficult, especially if one spouse accuses the other of abuse.
In the case of Pitt and Jolie, the FBI is reportedly looking into the allegations Jolie has purported against her soon-to-be former husband. A spokesperson for the agency said it is currently gathering information and will later determine whether it will formally pursue the claim at a federal level. In the meantime, Pitt and Jolie, parents of six children, are said to have reached a temporary custody agreement.
A high-profile couple is likely to have personal issues aired in public on many occasions. This can further complicate the divorce process and create additional issues that must be addressed before agreeable solutions can be found. In any Washington divorce situation, acting alongside experienced representation may prove helpful to avoid emotional outbursts and angry courtroom battles.
