While its claimed that Angelina is hoping to get sole custody over all six of their children, Brad is allegedly wanting a 50/50 split.
Their trial is set to take place on 2 December and could last between two to three weeks, TMZ reports.
The publication claims that the former couple have already filed legal documents, where they have allegedly asked an L.A. Superior Court Judge to give them until next June to sort through their divorce.
Earlier this year it was said that Angelina had arranged a secret meeting with Brad to discuss the custody of their children in the future.
A source told Entertainment Tonight: Brad and Angelina actually set up a secret meeting at her house. Its the first time they have truly gotten together to make things work since their group therapy with the children. Brad and Angies meeting was a success.
They are going to stay with the plan set forth through the courts.
Brad, 54, was allegedly relieved at the opportunity to hash out their ongoing dispute after much back and forth with the courts.
According to the insider, Brad has been dedicated to making peace throughout the process and now it finally seems like they are at a point where they can create a calmer situation for the kids.
In June this year, the mother-of-six was ordered by court to encourage her children to spend more time with their dad.
And it appears things are looking up for the Fight Club star, as he is now reportedly seeing his kids on most school days for four hours at a time, as well as spending around 12 hours with them on non-school days.
A source said of the situation going forward: She started to see a change in the kids behavior because they missed their dad. The kids reaction to the divorce actually helped Angie try a different tact.
