Britney To Get Increased Visitation & Overnights

Kevin Federline may be on his way to receiving sole custody, but he’s not the sole winner in his battle with Britney Spears.

Attorneys for both sides met with Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon this morning in a bid to get final approval for a deal that would give K-Fed retain primary physical custody of sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1. Spears, meanwhile, will get a boost to her current visitation rights—with the possibility of much more to come.

The deal would also preempt a trial in the case.

“She gets increased visitation and additional overnights, and once the conservatorship ends, she will ask the court to change it back to a shared 50/50 legal and physical custody,” a source close to Spears told E! News.

Laura Wasser, attorney for the 26-year-old “Gimme More” singer, told reporters outside the courtroom that Spears is more than happy with the terms of the deal.

“Britney is really pleased,” she said. “She has the kids today.”

Pleased or not, while the deal is as good as done, it’s not yet on the record books, despite this morning’s hearing.

“I believe we will come to an agreement and the agreement will be converted into a legal document sometime in the future,” Kaplan said. “I will not comment on the terms of the agreement. It will not be filed today.

“Right now it is a private agreement. It has not been turned into an order.”

“Nothing has been filed,” court spokesman Alan Parachini confirmed. “A resolution is imminent. What that is, don’t know, because we haven’t seen it yet.

“Neither Britney nor Kevin came to court today. But [the attorneys] did indicate they are working on a settlement.”

Meanwhile, when the conservatorship of Spears’ estate ends, a source says the singer plans to ask the commissioner to restore shared custody—terms similar to what the couple had prior to her January meltdown.

News of a settlement in the long-gestating, headline-grabbing case broke last night, when Federline attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told E! News “all the issues that would have been addressed at trial have been settled.”

  1. MAY…. IT WAS ALL OVER THE NEWS DIS MORNING DAT BRITNEY GAVE HIM SOLE CUSTODY. I WUZ SUPRISED. I THOUGHT SHE REALLY WANTED 50/50 BUT I GUESS DIS IS WHAT SHE WANTED BESIDE IT WOULD PROBABLY BE TOO MUCH FOR HER ITS A GOOD THING MAYBE… BUT I HER SHE MIGHT CHANGE 2 50/50 AFTER CONSERVATORSHIP. CAN U DO. I DON’T THINK SO, BUT WUTEVA!!!

  2. SHE IS GONNA BE PAYIN A WHOLE LOT OF CHILD SUPPORT. SHE MAKES MORE MONEY SO SHE HAS TO. ANOTHER WAY 4 K-FED 2 GET MONEY (FOR THE KIDS OF COURSE)

  3. Yes, Mimi, she can request that the custody be changed back to 50/50 after her conservatorship ends. The reason she isn’t fighting for 50/50 right now is because she is still under the conservatorship and doesn’t want to risk losing any visitation rights. It’d be a gamble, and she’s not willing to take that risk. After this agreement, the custody split will be about 60/40, which isn’t bad at all.

  4. I think brit did wat was best nw at this moment. She knew dat if it hit trial things wuld just get uglier and she wuldnt hav won. No judge wil grant her 50/50 until she shows total control and stability in her lyf. Wich she doesnt hav nw. And shes tryna get on wit things..a trial nw wuld just drag things bak down agen. She did da ryt thing. And hav faith dat she knows wat shes doin
