A judge has denied Brad Pitt’s request to seal his child custody dispute as he fights for increased time with their kids. Pitt is trying to get his visitation bumped to “at least twice per week” and went to court for an emergency hearing to get a judge involved behind closed doors, court documents reveal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard J. Burdge Jr. denied Pitt’s request in a brief written order that states the filing did not meet the requirements for sealing details at this time.

The 52-year-old actor’s move came two days after the release of a custody agreement that he and his estranged wife reached in late October. The agreement calls for the actor to have visitation with his children under the guidance of a therapist.

He also was seeking the sealing of any custody-related filings. “I am extremely concerned that if court records regarding custody are not sealed, information contained therein will cause irreparable damage to our children’s privacy rights,” he wrote in a sworn declaration filed Wednesday.

Jolie filed for divorce in September and currently has primary custody of their six children.
