Jolie is asking for full physical custody of their six children, with Pitt granted visitation. Twitter is abuzz with speculation that this will lead to a public custody battle, but family law attorney Michael B. Hanasab says that's unlikely.

WATCH  | While a custody battle could involve a full health evaluation and investigation of both parents, Hanasab says it's unlikely to get that contentious. Pitt showed that inclination in this statement to CNN, "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids."

Tabloids have widely reported that Brad Pitt was cheating on Angelina with his "Allied" costar Marion Cotillard, but whether that is true or not will have no impact on these proceedings since California is a no fault state.

WATCH   | Another irrelevant issue in this divorce will be spousal support. Hanasab wasn't surprised to hear that Jolie did not request support, because he said with a short two year marriage between two extremely high earners there's not much to negotiate.

WATCH  | Hanasab says the power couple will likely do their best to keep this out of court and by doing so out of public review. He says private mediation is likely the next step, and the next time the public will be able to confirm details will be when the judgement is filed.

WATCH  | How long does Brad Pitt have to respond to her filing for divorce?  Hanasab says the time Pitt takes to respond and the style in which he responds to the divorce filing will set the tone for these proceedings.
