In Touch has exclusively learned that the California Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) investigation, which was launched just days before Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and demanded sole physical custody of their six kids, is likely to wrap up as early as this week.
After nearly two months, “DCFS will be formally closing the investigation after finding absolutely no evidence to support the abuse claims” against Brad, a source close to the investigation exclusively reveals.
After weeks of voluntarily submitting to intense questioning, drug tests (which he passed), limited visitation with Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, Brad has won a significant victory in the battle to secure joint custody.

Brad recently enjoyed a third monitored visit with his children and is now looking forward to many more.
“Though Brad has had another visit with four of the kids,” says the source, “Maddox and Pax didn’t want to go. But the kids have been in therapy and it does seem to be helping.”

DCFS wants the family to keep that up. “The goal is to bring the family back together and move forward with a plan of healing. Counseling will definitely be among the recommendations, along with co-parenting classes for Brad and Angie,” says the source.
As In Touch previously reported the custody battle between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is going to a new level and heading to family court, despite a statement released by Team Angelina that indicated a new legal agreement had been reached.
