In case there are some who need help in dismissing the latest tabloid concoctions, a refresher:
Under CA law, ATROs take effect once a Petition is filed that prevent either parent from removing the children from California.
Child custody laws in California are focused on the child’s best interest. That best interest involves, as much as reasonably possible, keeping stability in the child’s life. Children taken out of State or the United States, especially young ones, may become difficult to find if the parent wants to hide them. This can cause all kinds of problems including national or international child abduction issues and the involvement of domestic and foreign courts or law enforcement. The ATROs play it safe and tell both parents it is a violation of a court order to take them.
They evidently quickly obtained a court order lifting the ATROs which allowed them to travel to Crested Butte in December 2016. And they have been traveling ever since, not just out of California, but out of the U.S. --- Angelina AND all SIX children have been photographed in Cambodia, London, Namibia, Paris, Toronto, and Brussels. Brad has been photographed in Paris, Miraval, the UK, Berlin, and the Netherlands. And these are just where they've been photographed. Additionally, under the legally binding Custody Stipulation that they signed and that was further signed into an Order by the judge, Angelina has legal custody. Once the ATRO was lifted, she is legally free to take the children with her whenever and wherever she wishes. She does not need the court's or Brad's permission. There is nothing in the Stipulation that impedes what she and the children can do. Brad had no such worries and has complete trust in her. From a factual and legal standpoint the tabloid story has absolutely nothing to stand on. But then tabloid writers have never let things like the lack of truth, logic and common sense stand in the way of churning out click bait. I would normally just dismiss the story outright but since it was picked up by Vanity Fair, which seems to be going more tabloid, I thought to address it.
Again: No bonafide member of their inner circle will ever talk about them to anyone, least of all to a tabloid. The tabloid stories about them are all total garbage. The so-called sources are mere figments of the writers' imaginations. Everyone here knows this. Garbage consumption is a conscious choice. The quickest way to lose credibility is to quote garbage.
A couple under similar circumstances that truly intended to divorce would have been divorced a long time ago. With an "airtight" prenup in hand, they would have filed it in court along with the Petition and Response. It simultaneously fulfills the critical asset disclosure requirement necessary for the divorce to advance and informs the court that they've made arrangements for the division of their properties. A custody stipulation signed by both parties and their respective attorneys is already a binding legal agreement covering custody. The court would have taken note of the two binding legal agreements in its judgement and granted their divorce as soon as the 6 month waiting period was up.
We saw her in L.A. and then we saw her leaving London, but we didn't see her leave L.A. or arrive back. She has a lot of work to do in the U.K. but other than that one sighting at the airport before they flew out, she and the rest of the family have only been seen in L.A. It obviously means she's been shuttling back and forth and has not been spending much time outside work in the U.K. There have been no sightings at airports or by fellow passengers so she hasn't been flying commercial, and even at the airports used by private jets, she has stayed out of reach of the long lenses of the paps. She didn't want to be seen and they've long mastered the art of going stealth.
Her hairdresser, Adam Campdell just posted from Las Vegas with JLo so evidently he isn't traveling with her and isn't needed on the Maleficent 2 set.
Once filming on Maleficent 2 starts and she has to spend up to 16 hours a day on set, she won't be able to do much, if any, traveling -- certainly not mid-week as she did last week. So whatever it is that required her presence in L.A. should be completed before Maleficent 2 starts filming. As also noted earlier, the Custody Stipulation becomes impracticable once she's completely occupied with Maleficent 2 and they're settled in the U.K.
I would guess that they had to hang around in L.A. for interviews with the therapists and the evaluator. It was the children's therapists who pushed for the S&O re Custody and Therapy which outlined the therapeutic process and incorporated recommendations made by the DCFS. It was submitted to the court and signed into an Order when Brad was insisting on nontherapeutic visits against the therapists' recommendations. Since it was signed, filed and became a Court Order under the Petition, they had to keep the Petition open until they had successfully completed the process and there was no longer any need to follow the provisions outlined in the stipulation. At that point they can move to have the S&O re Custody and Therapy completely set aside. The Petition cannot be dismissed while the Order signed by the court is still in place. Once the mental health professionals have formally determined that they've completed the process, the way would be clear for them to file a request for dismissal of the Petition.
"The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification."
