Random Fuzzy

They filmed the ads for two days before she left for the London ministerial conference so they filmed it Sept. 6 and 7.

The Marie Claire & A&E interviews were probably drawn from a set of written Q&As arranged recently by Guerlain.  She probably answered them close to the same time she posed for the close-up photos that accompanied the interviews.   Likely in January when the campaign was announced and the first events took place.  Her face was thinner in the photos than it was during the Siem Reap Premiere.

In response to persistent questions I am posting again this info:
Both Angelina's petition and Brad's response omitted info on their assets, liabilities and income.  Neither mentioned the existence of their prenup.   As explained below, the divorce petition will be dismissed if they do not provide the court with the necessary income, asset and debt disclosures.  To correct this, they have to amend both the petition and the response by filing new forms with the required info.

Everything that is filed in court shows up in the Case Summary.  All their filings after Judge Ouderkirk took over on Jan. 9 have been kept confidential but are listed in the Case Summary.  To-date no amended petition or response has been filed. 

If you didn't know anything else, you would know just from the fact that they have not complied with disclosure requirements that the dissolution petition cannot advance further.  With an "ironclad" prenup in hand, they could have easily complied right from the start.  But we've known from their lawyers' emails and from everything they've said and done that family reunification and not dissolution has always been their goal.

At this point, they are likely still waiting for Dr. Katz's report.  As noted previously, the judge would preferably like to see that Dr. Katz's conclusions are in general agreement with the therapists' recommendations.

California law mandates that the divorce process take at least six months, and this waiting period does not begin until your spouse is officially served with the divorce petition.....If you change your mind about finalizing the separation before or after the six-months, you can stop the divorce process in several different ways.

Some people file for divorce in California expecting their marriage to end exactly 180 days after their divorce papers are served. But this is not the case. The six-month period provides a minimum term before which a divorce cannot be granted but California divorces can and often do take far longer. Serving a petition for divorce is only the first of many steps you must undertake before the court will sign your divorce judgment. You are entitled to a divorce either when all of your paperwork is complete or after six months, whichever comes later.

Failure to complete your divorce paperwork will stop your divorce proceeding. Whether or not your husband responds to your petition, you are required to file certain documents, including income, asset and debt disclosures, ...If you fail to file any of these forms, the court will not enter a divorce judgment. Continued inaction will ultimately lead the court to dismiss the petition for divorce whether or not the six-month waiting period has passed.

A spouse who has received a formal response to divorce pleadings generally must enter a stipulated dismissal to terminate the case.  Both spouses must sign a stipulated dismissal which states the parties agree to drop the divorce and addresses conditions of the dismissal such as costs and attorney's fees. A stipulated dismissal must be submitted to the court for approval and entry.  Source

In California, it will take a stipulation, along with the Dismissal form. Source


A change in circumstances in the middle of the divorce process can have a significant impact on the case. Newly discovered property, a change of income and assets, and a change in the relationship with minor children are perhaps the more common developments.

The document that initiates a divorce is called a petition in California. The party who files the petition is called the petitioner. A petitioner has the right to amend the divorce petition one time without asking the court for permission to do so. To amend the petition, the petitioner must use the same petition forms that were initially used to file for divorce. The petitioner must check the “AMENDED” box located within the caption of the first page of the divorce petition.

If the party to whom the petition was filed against decides to file his own set of paperwork, that paperwork is called a response; the responding party is referred to as the respondent. As with the petition, the respondent can amend the response one time without asking the court for permission to do so. Also similar to the petition is the “AMENDED” box that appears within the caption at the top of the first page of the response. The respondent must check this box to inform the court that this subsequent response amends information contained within the original response.

Courts are interested in moving cases through the system efficiently. To prevent an endless number of amended documents, California requires a party who wants to make subsequent amendments to obtain the permission of the court first.


California law allows a person who filed a divorce petition to amend that petition to accommodate a change in circumstances or to correct information that was originally included or omitted by mistake. You need to prepare and submit another FL 100 form, the same form you initially used to file for dissolution of your marriage. Because the amended petition contains new information, your spouse must receive a copy of your amended paperwork.

Step 1

Acquire Form 100, the divorce petition, from the clerk’s office where you filed your original form.

Step 2

Check the “AMENDED” box that appears within the heading at the top of the first page of the petition form.

Step 3

Fill out the amended petition paperwork as you did when you initially filed for divorce, ensuring you include the new information.

Step 4

Make two photocopies of your completed amended petition.

Step 5

File the original amended petition with the clerk, as you did when you filed your original petition.

Step 6

Ask the clerk to file-stamp your two photocopies. One copy is for your spouse, and the other is for your records.

Step 7

Direct a process server to deliver one stamped photocopy of your amended petition on your spouse. The process server will complete and return to you a document called a “Proof of Service.” File that document with the court clerk.

“Every document you file in court immediately becomes public, and if you hire a private judge, you can work out the details before you file anything,” Wasser told The Hollywood Reporter.

If there is a prenup, why does it matter?
It means the asset-dividing aspect of the divorce can be easily settled. ...
It's significant that Jolie mentioned nothing about a prenup in her divorce petition.
"Usually when we (lawyers) file a petition, if there is a prenup we indicate that — unless we don't like it," says Hallin. "When (Pitt) files his response, he will say in there whether he wants to enforce (a prenup)."


Sources close to the couple tell us their prenuptial agreement is ironclad and details the specifics of their combined fortune ... a reported $400 mil.
Brangelina have 12 total properties together ... all of which they snatched up either before they were married or before they were even dating. 7 of those belong to Brad, 2 to Angie and 3 which they bought together prior to tying the knot in 2014.
It's unclear who exactly shelled out what for those 3 properties, which include a vineyard in France, a mansion in New Orleans and an apartment in NY ... but we're told the prenup makes divvying all that up simple.

How long does it take to complete a custody evaluation?
Generally the Court will continue your case for 60-90 days if a custody evaluation has been ordered. During this time the evaluator will conduct interviews, collect and review information, and write their evaluation report.

What is included in a limited child custody evaluation?
  1. Interviews with the parents.
  2. Interviews with the child(ren).
  3. A criminal records check
  4. A Child Protective Services check.
  5. Contact with collateral sources such as School Teachers, Counselors, or Employers.

Is the recommendation an order of the court?
A custody evaluation report and recommendation has no legal status until the Court acts on it. A party who wishes to have the report adopted must appear at a scheduled Court hearing. If both parties are in agreement, the Court may approve the recommendations, or the Court may decide to make other orders. If either party disagrees with the recommendation, the matter may be set for further Court hearing.

    Last January, we learned that Guerlain had set her sights on Angelina Jolie to embody her new fragrance, whose name and characteristics had never been revealed. Today, the French perfumer has put an end to the suspense by unveiling the promotional spot for his new fragrance, Mon Guerlain , featuring the sublime actress and Hollywood director.

    Directed by the illustrious Terrence Malick ( The Moves of Heaven, The Red Line, The Tree of Life ), the short film, called Notes of a Woman , depicts Angelina Jolie in the bucolic setting of a Provencal estate south of France, where is harvested lavender carla that is found in the fragrance. At the heart of the story is Guerlain's desire to pay tribute to the profession of perfumer who has made his reputation since 1828. One can thus admire the master at work, composing the olfactory symphony that will materialize later in a unique fragrance, Like the woman he loves and admires, who embodies the emotions, qualities, choices, goals and dreams of a modern femininity: intrepid and gentle, strong and delicate, sensual and loving,

    Angelina Jolie, who has been involved with associations for many years and co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, has donated all of her income to charities thanks to Mon Guerlain .

    The fragrance
    Imagined by Thierry Wasser, Guerlain's emblematic master perfumer, the opus revolves around the vanilla Tahitensis, a fetish of the house found in Shalimar or Habit Rouge , and lavender carla. " This new kind of agreement makes it possible to get out of the divide, from the ambiguity man / woman because it plays on the reconciliation of the genres. This brings to Mon Guerlain its power and modernity, "explains Delphine Jelk, who co-created the fragrance. The delicacy of sambac jasmine and the richness of the sandal album, conclude this authentic and enchanting juice, preserved in a quadrilobé case worthy of the biggest fragrances Guerlain.

  5. New Mon Guerlain perfume launched in Kenyan market
    The perfume whose scent’s muse and face is inspired by US actress Angelina Jolie will be sold at Madora shops in Nairobi exclusively for the next two months before other outlets start stocking it.
