They split in September 2016, but Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce seems far from over.

In a new Los Angeles Superior Court filing, obtained by "Extra," Angelina claims Brad has failed to make “meaningful” child support payments since the breakup.

Now, she’s considering a court order to get the money.

Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, wrote in the brief, "[Pitt] has a duty to pay child support. As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation.”

The brief continued, "Given the informal arrangements around the payment of the children's expenses have not been regularly sustained by [Pitt] for over a year and a half, [Jolie] intends to file an RFO (request for court order) for the establishment of a retroactive child support order."

The documents did not clarify how much is considered “meaningful child support.”

Jolie’s team is asking for a status conference to address the issue.

Back in June, the exes made headlines when court docs revealed a judge wanted Brad to spend more time with their six children.

While eldest son Maddox, 16, was allowed to choose his own custody arrangements, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge John W. Ouderkirk was clear that moving forward, Brad would have more contact with the younger children, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9.

Angelina and Brad split in September 2016 after two years of marriage. They had been partners for nearly 12 years.
