Angelina Jolie wants divorce finalized by end of 2018

Angelina Jolie on Tuesday sought to move forward with her long and sometimes bitter divorce from Brad Pitt, which has yet to be finalized after nearly two years.

The arrangement for child support was allegedly informal, per the TMZ report, but Jolie claims that Pitt has not even lived up to those informal expectations.

The divorce proceedings between the former Hollywood couple have been bitter - and played out publicly - in recent months.

The document also said that Pitt had "paid no meaningful child support since separation" and said that although informal arrangements had been made with him, payments "had not been regularly sustained". In June, however, the court ordered Jolie to help fix Pitt's relationships with his children, as "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them". Previously, Pitt had had no contact with his children.

Pitt's attorney Lance Spiegel did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The problem is, every single time their attorneys have tried to hash out the terms for child support, just as they're about to reach an agreement, Angelina has suddenly changed the goalpost. Jolie has sought sole custody of the children.

According to the ruling set down by the judge in June, Pitt has been given a summer schedule to see his kids, minus the oldest child, Maddox, who has been deemed old enough to decide how much time he wants to spend with his adoptive father.

The brood is now living in London with Jolie as she films Maleficent 2, while Pitt has spent his court-ordered time with the kids in London and Los Angeles, where he is shooting Quentin Tarantino's new movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

TMZ says that Brad "has given her "way, way more" than the amount he agreed to pay ... we're told the total is in the millions of dollars". Pitt adopted Jolie's other adoptive son, Pax, two years earlier, due to local adoption laws that allowed it to be an easier process.

Pitt was later provided with cell phone numbers for each child, in order to text and call them without Jolie's supervision.

Jolie's team is asking for a status conference to address the issue.
