Britney Spears seeking more time with her sons

29458459_s.jpgMany people in Kansas have heard of Britney Spears' recent mental health and child custody struggles. According to reports, Spears' custody agreement with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, was altered after she checked into a treatment center in September. The ex-couple's 50-50 custody agreement was changed to a 70-30 split with Spears having the smaller amount of time with her two sons.

US Weekly reported that Spears has plans to seek more parenting time when she goes back to family court next year. Spears will have to convince a judge that her 14-year-old and 13-year-old sons would benefit from spending more than 30% of their time under her care. Because Spears is under a conservatorship, she cannot legally be awarded full custody.

Spears' father Jamie has acted as his daughter's conservator for the past 10 years due to her reported bipolar disorder and substance abuse struggles. He has also been in the news for the way that he interacts with his grandsons. Over the summer, Federline filed an emergency restraining order against the grandfather following an alleged physical altercation involving the 14-year-old. US Weekly reported that the incident might have caused a rift between Britney and her father.

Because her children are teenagers, Spears' child custody case may be different from her previous cases. When children reach the age of 14, family court judges typically take their wishes and opinions about custody arrangements more seriously. A parent who is going through a child custody dispute involving teenage children may want to ask a lawyer for representation. A lawyer may be able to help make sure that the statements from the children are not coerced or unduly influenced.
