Britney Spears reaches custody agreement with ex-husband

Singer will get increased access to her sons

Britney Spears has reached an agreement with ex-husband Kevin Federline allowing her more access to her children.

The singer will be allowed more overnight visits with her two sons, while Federline will retain sole custody, meaning a planned custody trial will now not take place.

Spears will now have three visits per week, with at least two overnight visits, with the possibility of expanded rights by the end of the year.

Neither party was present at the closed-door session in Los Angeles, reports the BBC.

Confirming that the singer will now get more access to Sean Preston and Jayden James, Spears‘ attorney Laura Wasser said told the Associated Press: “The fact is, it’s a win for the family.”

Federline‘s lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan said: “This has been a long ordeal and to have that over is something that makes him extremely happy.”

Spears lost custody of the two boys last October, losing visiting rights in January amidst ongoing public troubles.

But Ms Wasser pointed to the agreement as further evidence of her continuing recovery. “The difference from the beginning of this year to now is astonishing,” she said.
