Brad Pitt has finally gotten to spend some time with his kids.

The actor met with some of his children on Oct. 8 for the first time since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce on Sept. 19.

According to a temporary plan recommended by DCFS and agreed to by Jolie and Pitt, a therapist was present during the meeting.

Pitt has vowed to do whatever he needs to do to spend time with his children amid an investigation by L.A.’s Department of Children and Family Services following allegations he was verbally abusive and got physical with their oldest son, Maddox, during a fight on the family’s private plane.

“Brad loves his children more than anything in this world, and they matter more than anything else to him,” a Pitt source previously told PEOPLE. “He will do whatever it takes to be with them, now and always.”

Jolie requested sole physical custody of their six children in her divorce filing with visitation for Pitt, while Pitt wants shared custody.

Until the DCFS recommended plan ends on Oct. 20, both Pitt and Jolie will undergo individual counseling, along with family therapy. Pitt will also continue voluntary drug and alcohol testing.
