Angelina Jolie might have to surrender primary custody of her six children to their father, Brad Pitt, if she isn't able to meet new guidelines stipulated by the court, recent documents obtained by multiple publications say.

A judge in the estranged couple's ongoing divorce case said in the documents that "it is critical that each of (the six) children have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother" and that Jolie must allow Pitt to maintain that.

The Blast lays out the order's details, which include a summer schedule on how much time Pitt gets with five of the children (16-year-old Maddox is allowed to decide this on his own due to his age); how often Jolie can contact the kids when they're with Pitt; and Pitt's access to the kids when they're with Jolie, including giving him the numbers to each child's cellphone, which Jolie isn't permitted to monitor.

It was also revealed that Jolie reads through her children's text messages and the judge has asked her to end that odd habit.

The couple share 6 kids: 16-year-old Maddox, 14-year-old Pax, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

The documents also reveal that Pitt will get custody of the kids from June 8 to June 17 for four hours per day while he stays in London - where Jolie now rents a house - designating one or two children to be with him at a time. While in Pitt's care, Jolie is only allowed to call the children one time per day and at a time agreed upon by both parents. Additionally, Jolie is allegedly barred from being present or interfering with Pitt's time with the kids in person. He also has custody for four hours a day from July 8-14.

A child psychologist has to be present while Brad visits the kids in London - where Angelina is renting a house right now - and has to make arrangements to have them see their doctors while in CA.

The decision comes nearly two years after Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences.

He is responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, in addition to paying for their transportation. Pitt will have custody again from August 11 until the next scheduled court hearing on August 13.

The court also outlined a new custody schedule for the children for the northern summer.

It was recently reported that Pitt had ensured that his next film, director Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is filmed in Los Angeles, thereby enabling him to be near the kids.

In the immediate aftermath of the split, Jolie sought sole physical custody of all the children.
