Angelina Jolie will continue to have sole custody of her six children with Brad Pitt in a joint agreement reached by the actors, a representative for the actress said Monday.

The Associated Press reports the agreement calls for the former couple’s six children, who range in ages from 8 to 15, to continue to have “therapeutic visits” with Pitt.

Jolie, 41, filed for divorce in September, days after Pitt, 52, was involved in a disturbance during a private fight with his family. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakup, and an attorney said at the time she filed for divorce “for the health of the family.”

Monday’s statement said the agreement was reached more than a week ago in consultation with childcare professionals. It says no further details could be provided, and it makes no mention of an investigation by child welfare workers into the plane incident.

Pitt and Jolie reached a temporary custody agreement in late September that included at least some of the same terms — visitation with his children and both sides agreeing to meetings with therapists. “We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time,” Monday’s statement said.

A representative for Pitt declined to comment.
