Angelina Jolie seeks $100,000 in monthly child support

Tennessee residents who have been following the divorce and child custody dispute sage of actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be interested to learn that Pitt believes that he will be granted joint custody of his six children. However, Jolie is reportedly still seeking sole custody in addition to a six-figure child support payment each month.

According to sources, Pitt and his legal team are "confident" that the judge will grant him joint custody. A source stated that Pitt never had an intention to prevent Jolie from seeing their children. Additionally, the legal team believes that the negative PR coming from Jolie's camp could sway the judge to favor his position.

In addition to continuing to seek sole custody of all the children, Jolie also requested $100,000 in child support each month. The funds would pay for the children's expenses and would also be put into a trust for each child. Pitt reportedly does not have a problem with paying the amount as long as it goes towards caring for the children. However, he would prefer to just put the money in the trust so that Jolie cannot control it.

Child custody disputes that occur when parents get a divorce can be contentious. A family law attorney may help a parent understand what they are entitled to when it comes to the custody of their child. While courts usually believe that it is in the child's best interest to have both parents involved, there may be extenuating circumstances that make it unsafe for the child to be around one of the parents. The attorney may provide proof that the other parent cannot properly care for the child due to abuse or neglect allegations.
