Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has accused Brad Pitt of not paying any ‘meaningful’ child support since their divorce proceedings began in 2016. Her attorney wrote in a brief which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court that Brad Pitt ‘has a duty to pay child support’. The brief obtained by a media sources, “Given the informal arrangements around the payment of the children’s expenses have not been regularly sustained by [Pitt] for over a year and a half.” The court filing did not define what ‘meaningful’ child support is.
The papers state that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had an ‘informal arrangement’ but Brad Pitt has not been paying the amount and therefore she is seeking formal child support as well as retroactive pay. The ex-couple is keen to formally end their marriage, but are determined to win the custody battle, as per media reports. The source informed to a daily, “The filing today was only intended for the marriage to be dissolved, and before everything else can be dissolved, things have to be done by both parties, including financial disclosure and child support.”
The source further revealed, “The dissolution of the marriage will help everyone move forward and work together — as co-parents, something they’re committed to. It’s up to the court to come up with a solution good for the kids.”
Jolie’s lawyer added in the court brief, “Given the informal arrangements around the payment of the children’s expenses have not been regularly sustained by [Pitt] for over a year and a half, [Jolie] intends to file an RFO [request for a court order] for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.”
