No more “Pitt-y” for Angelina Jolie. She has legally dropped Brad Pitt‘s last name after they restore their single status.

The actress officially removes "Pit" from her ex-husband, going back to Angelina Jolie, according to a court paper on Friday. The news came after just two days after the court judged the duo are legally single and they were given bifurcation.

A source from The Blast revealed that the former power couple had requested for a bifurcation judgment, which ended their marriage but allowed them to continue to negotiate the end of their divorce, including settling assets and custody of their six children.

Brad Pitt, 55 and Angelina Jolie, 43 filed for divorce in 2016 after 2-year-marriage and 12-year intimate relationship. And they’ve spent much of the time since then fighting over custody of their six children. These children’s last names will continue to be the hyphenated Jolie-Pitt, according to The Blast.

“Both parents are focused on what’s best for the kids,” a source told PEOPLE after the bifurcation was confirmed.

In 2018, an insider confirmed the former couple reached a custody agreement to avoid going to trial. “Brad and Angelina will have joint physical and legal custody of the children." A source also revealed that Pitt pleaded with his estranged wife to settle the custody dispute outside of court, " He reached out hoping to persuade Angie that the hearing will cause lasting psychological damage to their children."

The Maleficent actress asked for physical custody of the children. Since then, they have been in ongoing negotiations over custody and dividing their finances.
