It is claimed that this agreement will last three weeks, at which time the Family Services Department can reassess the deal or possibly turn the case over to court.

Angelina Jolie has hired crisis manager Judy Smith, the woman who inspired the hit TV show Scandal, in her high-profile split from estranged husband Brad Pitt, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. Pitt has been granted visitations with certain specifications, including that a therapist must be present during his initial visit and that the therapist has the power to choose if Pitt's visits should remain monitored.

The temporary divorce agreement also subjects Pitt to random drug and alcohol testing, according to TMZ.

Moreover, Pitt, Jolie and the kids will undergo family counseling as a group.

Considering the tough time Brad Pitt's had recently, it's totally understandable that he chose to skip the premiere of new documentary Voyage Of Time to focus on his family.

Angelina is seeking sole custody of the couple's six children - Maddox (15), Pax (12), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10), and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The two were married for two years, but had been dating since 2004, after meeting on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston.

According to reports, Pitt was surprised that Jolie filed for a divorce on September 19.

A source close to the Pitt-Jolie child custody dispute tells ET that camps for the A-list stars have recently been having "productive discussions".

The following day, the FBI confirmed it was looking at whether to open an investigation into allegations Pitt clashed with one of his six children while on board a plane which landed in Minnesota.

A source said Jolie is pleased with the agreement, explaining, "She did get what she wanted out of this".

Jolie's decision to divorce Pitt reportedly occurred after an alleged incident on a flight, during which Pitt allegedly had an altercation with one of the couple's children. "Angelina agreed [because] her focus is to heal her family and her children", the site reports.
