The couple separated in September 2016 after two years of marriage, with Jolie citing "irreconcilable differences" when she filed for divorce.

The pair have six children—three biological and three adopted— aged between 10 and 17.

Jolie's lawyer did not though say how the custody would be divided, the BBC reported.

The couple, known as "Brangelina" by fans, met on the set of the film Mr & Mrs Smith in 2004 and were together for 10 years before they wed.

The marriage was Pitt's second, the actor having previously wed romcom TV hit Friends star Jennifer Aniston, and Jolie's third after relationships with actors Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller.

After Jolie announced the split the pair became embroiled in a bitter child custody battle, which included Pitt being investigated for possible child abuse after losing his temper in front of some of the children —he was later cleared of the allegations, the BBC said.

The agreement means they will not have to go to trial over custody, but they have yet to reach a final divorce settlement.
