American actress Angelina Jolie has taken legal steps to allow her and her children to be heard by a family court judge. The 40-year-old claims to have "evidence" that her former partner, Brad Pitt, was abusing her.

War rages on between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Almost four years after their separation (in 2016), the American actress began legal proceedings to certify acts of domestic violence, on the part of her former husband, says the media US Weekly. These same documents were filed on March 12: the 40-year-old wants her and her five children to be heard by a family court judge.

At the heart of the matter is shared custody of the children. There are many aspects that still need to be considered in this divorce proceeding.
