Brad Pitt's access to his six children rests in the hands of one man, a therapist named Ian Russ, new court documents filed by Angelina Jolie state.
According to TMZ, court documents state that the doctor's determination is final for the time being.
Ian, a psychologist who specializes in child custody issues, is named in the paperwork, which states the "frequency and conditions of the therapeutic visitation shall be determined by Ian Russ, Ph.D."
Both parents are also required to participate in group therapy sessions with the kids, per their current custody arrangement, which is temporary, but can be changed if there's a court order or if both parents agree to change it.
Brad also has to submit to at least four random drug and alcohol tests per month.
The new documentation is more of a rehashing of the previous agreement that the couple agreed to in October. Under that deal, Angelina got full physical custody of the kids. Brad got visitation, but had to bring along a therapist on his first visit, who could then decide if he could get unmonitored visits after that.
Brad was also subject to random drug/alcohol testing at that time, which he still does.
The deal was initially good for three weeks, but has been extended.
On Sept. 20, Angelina filed for divorce from Brad after 12 years together. They share Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
Throughout the divorce, there has been a few rounds of good news for Brad. In November, he was cleared of child abuse against Maddox.
The accusation against his eldest son stemmed from an incident on a private plane in September, which occurred one day before Angie filed for divorce.
Brad has filed for joint custody of the couple's children.
