Quote: “It is unusual for parties to fight for six years. It is a toxic environment that inevitably is experienced by the children. One of their children has aged out, meaning that he turned 18 before the parties were done fighting over him. There appears to be no good reason for Brad and Angelina to have lingering custody disputes. They split long ago and nothing new has been reported about anything that would make either parent unsafe to be around the children. Parents need to balance the desire to protect their children from the other parent versus the damage that will be done to the children from a custody dispute.”
