Because of his age, under Californian law Maddox is allowed to choose which parent he wants to live with. According to US Weekly, a source close to Jolie-Pitt says the teen has already decided to stick by his mum.
Maddox was adopted from Cambodia by Jolie-Pitt in 2002, two years before she became involved with Pitt. Pitt adopted Maddox in 2006.
Days after the celebrity couple called it quits, Jolie-Pitt sued for sole physical custody, however have since pair signed a parental agreement which gives them joint custody until October 20.
Jolie-Pitt and her children met with FBI agents on Tuesday to discuss allegations of child abuse against her estranged husband Brad Pitt.
The Wanted beauty filed for divorce on 19 September, seeking to end her two-year marriage to Pitt for the "health of the family", according to her attorney, Robert Offer.
It subsequently emerged the actors had reportedly clashed over Pitt's style of parenting following an incident with 15-year-old son Maddox on a private plane trip from France to Los Angeles on September 14.
The claims prompted officials from both the FBI and the LA County Department of Children and Family Services to launch an investigation into allegations of child abuse.
On Tuesday, two FBI agents paid a visit to Jolie's home in Malibu, California, where they spent more than three hours interviewing the actress and her brood about the alleged plane dispute, according to TMZ.com.
The meeting, during which the Jolie-Pitt clan was asked to recall the incident step-by-step, was reportedly held to help officials determine whether the accusations warrant a full investigation.
Jolie currently has full physical custody of the kids, as agreed in a temporary deal last month (Sep16), although Pitt has been granted visitation.
He has reportedly enjoyed two visits with their children to date.
As part of the custody deal, which will be reviewed by DCFS representatives after October 20, both stars will undergo individual counselling, in addition to family sessions with their offspring, while the Inglourious Basterds actor will also submit to random drug and alcohol tests.
He recently volunteered for a similar test, which reportedly came back negative.
