It's been reported Brad and Angelina have taken legal steps to dissolve their union including who gets custody of their six children.

Reportedly Brad and Angie worked with attorneys to complete a contract for legal separation. "The contract was like a tailor-made version of a pre-nuptial agreement except for an unmarried couple's split," a source told The News of the World.
The agreement gives them joint custody of the kids -- but all six will actually live full-time with Angelina. "It seemed clear they want the world to know they'll both play a part in the upbringing of the children," the source told a British newspaper. A formal announcement of their separation is expected soon, says the report.
Last week the National Enquirer ran a story claiming the couple's relationship had ended after a furious row at a New York restaurant earlier this month. 'Their focus is now on making a smooth transition for their children,' the magazine claimed.
The famous celebrity couple, who fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004-2005 while Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston, have three adopted children together (Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, and Zahara, 6) and three biological children (Shiloh, 3, and 17- month-old twins Knox and Vivienne).
As reported in the January 25th issue of Star Magazine, Brad and Angelina's relationship has been on the rocks for some time. Reportedly Brad walked out on Zahara's birthday party recently and there have been reports of screaming matches.
Last week the star studded couple failed to show at the 2010 Golden Globes Awards - even though Brad's film "Inglorious Basterds" was up for several awards.
On Friday night 46-year-old Brad was photographed backstage at the Hope For Haiti Now telethon in Los Angeles without Angelina, 34. His ex-wife Jennifer Aniston was there, however, although not with him.
