Over a month after first announcing their plans to divorce, it seems like the the worst might finally be behind #AngelinaJolie and #BradPitt. What could have been a long and arduous custody battle appears to have come to a relatively swift conclusion, leaving Jolie the primary guardian of all six of the Jolie-Pitt youngsters.

One source close to the mother revealed to People:
"We can confirm that childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago. In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother’s custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest.
"We are not in a position to discuss the details. We hope now that it is clear that the events which led to the dissolution filing involved minor children and their wellbeing, there will be understanding of the sensitivity of the family situation. We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time."
However, another People magazine source insinuated that this was only a temporary arrangement, designed to give the kids some stability while mom and dad continue the custody battle. This seems more likely, since it was only last Friday that Brad revealed he was going to push for joint custody.
But is he going to get it? That remains to be seen. After all, Jolie stated that the reason for filing for divorce in the first place was Pitt's style of parenting:
"Angelina's decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children ... she was extremely upset with his methods."
Do you think this is the final word on the Jolie-Pitt divorce?
