Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce has been taking new twists and turns. This time Angelina has decided to change her lawyer. The 43 year old Hollywood actress has reportedly parted ways with her attorney Laura Wasser and will now be working with Samantha Bley DeJean. As per reports by a leading daily Samantha is an expert in protection and best interest of children. It was also reported that Angelina appreciated the efforts by Laura in transitioning the case over the past several weeks.

Pitt and Jolie are yet to come to a decision in terms of custody of their children. The former couple are parents to six children, Maddox Jolie-Pitt who is 17 years old, Paz Jolie-Pitt who is 14 years old, Zahara Jolie-Pitt who is 13 years old, Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt who are 10 years old and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt who is 12 years old. While talking about the children’s relationship with their father, Angelina remains committed in helping the children to heal with their father.

It has been about two years Angelina Jolie has filed for a divorce from Brad after two years of their marriage. Just two weeks back Angelina had alleged that Brad has not supported with any meaningful child support since their divorce proceedings started off in 2016. A two-page brief was filed by Jolie’s lawyer which stated that it was Brad’s duty to pay for child support.

It was later also added that regarding the payments towards the children’s expenses, they have not been paid regularly by Pitt for more than a year and a half. Jolie thus requested for a court order for the establishment of a retroactive child support order. Jolie and Brad first met on the sets of their film Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2003 and after a few years started dating publicly. They got married in 2014 but split in 2016.
