Utah movie fans more than likely already know that the days of "Brangelina" are coming to a close. At first, it looked like the couple was going to end up in a public and contentious divorce that would be fodder for the media for quite some time. However, the couple recently decided to resolve their issues in a more private manner by moving out of the public eye and using a private judge.
Few Utah couples have the assets and public attention that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie do, but that does not mean that a courtroom battle is inevitable or preferable. Giving in to the traditional adversarial system often causes more harm than good for divorcing couples. Choosing to stay out of the courtroom allows more privacy and the chance to tailor an agreement to the family's specific circumstances.
