Divorced couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have set a date to hash it out in court over custody of their six children.

The Hollywood actors tied the knot in 2014, and share three biological and three adopted children together.

As Dearly previously reported, the iconic duo split in 2016. Jolie cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce.

The mom asked for sole physical custody of their children in the filing, but Pitt hit back, asking for joint legal and physical custody, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The parents set an interim custody agreement in August, but are now settling the custody battle in court starting December 4.

Judge Ouderkirk will preside over the trial, which will likely be sealed off to outside parties, ET reports. Both parents will be able to attend court via telephone.

The court date comes after months of fighting between the couple.

In August, Jolie claimed that Pitt was not making child support payments for their six children, Dearly reported.

The dad hit back by saying that he had loaned his ex-wife millions to pay for a home and medical expenses for the family.

A lawyer for Jolie, Samantha Bley DeJean, responded by saying that the loan didn’t count as child support.

Following the incident of September 2016, Angelina and the children needed to move from the family home, which Brad chose to keep, including all of its contents. Brad was asked to assist in the expense of a new home for Angelina and the children, but instead he loaned Angelina money, for which he is charging her interest on a payment plan. Angelina will of course honor that loan.

A loan is not; however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate.

According to TMZ, the trial will likely take two to three weeks to complete. The former couple has not spoken about publicly regarding their upcoming court date.
