A new custody agreement grants Britney Spears’ ex Kevin Federline 70 percent custody of their two sons. The agreement, which was drawn up in August 2018, officially took effect on August 28, 2019, allowing them to test the arrangement beforehand. Up until last year they split custody of their 12- and 13-year-old sons 50 percent each, although in the past Spears lost custody of her children altogether because of her well-publicized mental health issues. In the current agreement, Federline will receive more money for child support as well. It is suspected that one of the reasons the agreement was renegotiated was due to the alleged assault against Britney Spears’ younger son by her father who acts as a guardian over her legal and financial affairs.
Child custody agreements may change with the shifting needs of the children and the parents. An agreement may serve both parents and the children well at the time it is established, but this does not mean that it cannot change. Modifications may be made by an attorney regarding how much time the children spend with each parent, the places of residence, and the amount of money granted from the custodial parent to the non-custodial parent for expenses related to the children.
Establishing a suitable and mutually agreeable child custody agreement or modifying an older one to update accommodations requires the consideration and knowledge of a skilled attorney.
