Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's recent split has been fraught with much legal issues as both parties continue their custody battle for their kids. However, the couple may have finally reached an agreement as both parties have now released a joint statement, which they both signed. The agreement itself is a good sign that the high-profile couple may be starting to settle their differences, if not for themselves then at least for the benefit of their six children.

The joint statement indicates that both parties have agreed to preserve the privacy rights of their children as well as to keep all of the court documents during the proceedings private and confidential. The couple have also agreed to engage with a private judge that will be making all of the necessary legal decisions.

The move will also result in the expedition of the resolution to any remaining legal issues between the two parties. The joint statement is the first released statement from the estranged couple since Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt back in Sept 2016. Ever since their divorce, the couple have been at the opposing ends of a messy legal battle over the custody of their children, namely Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne.

Pitt initially filed a motion to have all their divorce documents sealed as he claims that their public release would only result in the intrusion into the lives of their children. The 53-year old actor and his attorneys claimed that the release of the documents wouldn't be detrimental to their children as it may reveal to the public the names of their therapists and mental health professionals, according to ET Online.

Jolie on the other hand slammed her ex for wanting to seal the documents, implying that he is hiding something and that he is just terrified that the public will know the truth. Now that both have agreed to seal the documents, the truth may never be publicly known.
