Pitt-Jolie child custody battle moves forward; Pitt cleared

By now, most New York residents have heard that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. Shortly prior to that filing, Pitt was accused of child abuse on a private airplane. Now that those allegations have been put to rest, the parties can continue their battle to determine child custody arrangements.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation was called in to investigate since the incident that led to the inquiry occurred on an airplane. Recently, the FBI announced that no charges would be filed. This announcement comes on the heels of a finding of no wrongdoing from the Department of Child and Family Services in the west coast state where the plane landed.

Even while facing a difficult situation, Pitt and Jolie were able to put aside their differences in order to do what they felt was in the best interests of their children. Pitt submitted to supervised visitation in order to assure everyone involved that he was committed to them. Now, Pitt can continue his bid for joint custody of the couple's six children. More than one New York father has found himself being accused of wrongdoing when it comes to their kids.

However, despite the hurt feelings and anger that might accompany allegations of child abuse, those fathers would benefit from following Pitt's example. As difficult as it might be, it would be better in the long run to be represented by counsel and let the system work. In the end, it is about creating a child custody arrangement that allows both parents as much time as possible with the children.
