Britney Spears: What She Needs To Do To End Her Conservatorship & Why Avoiding An Assessment Is A ‘Long Shot’

Britney Spears urged a judge to end her conservatorship, without any assessment, when she appeared in court. But a top household attorney explains what it will really take for her to break totally free.

Britney Spears, 39, spoke at a court hearing referring to her on-going conservatorship and exposed that she formerly didn’t understand she could petition the court to end it. “I honestly didn’t know that,” she informed Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny during her June 23 hearing.

She then went on to inform the court that stated she had actually done research that revealed her 13-year-long conservatorship might be ended without more examination of her. “I want to end this conservatorship without being assessed,” she firmly insisted during her lengthy-speech.

However, as impassioned as the pop star’s plea was, she will likely have to do more to put an end to the conservatorship. Top NYC legal representative Michael Stutman informed HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, that it’s a “long shot” that a court would call off the conservatorship without medical evidence.

spoke with the court on her own behalf on June 23 and revealed she was formerly unaware that she might petition to end her conservatorship.

,”the founding partner of Stutman & Lichtenstein discussed.”It’s not just a ‘he said, she said’ kind of a thing, where Ms. Spears can simply can be found in and give a genuine and sincere and apparently extremely truthful declaration,” he continued. “She is, after all, a performer. There is a factor why you require something aside from simply what someone says, since people will say things that they think to be real in their heart, and they can be really convincing. And it might end up that what they’re saying truly isn’t really real.”

The leading NYC lawyer discussed that in order for Britney to be released from her conservatorship she will need to present an application to a judge who has the authority to “liquify” the conservatorship. According to the knowledgeable lawyer Britney can “attack” the conservatorship in several ways. “She could state that the visit of the conservator, in the original proceeding, was somehow defective, either procedurally, or as a matter of safety process,” he explained.

According to Stutman, Britney could go after her own lawyer for offering her bad legal advice. “It appears like she wishes to throw the lawyer who has been advising her under the bus for inefficient counsel,” he assumed.

“The other method of attack would be that a conservatorship was never ever intended to be a life time appointment, or a life time scenario,” he said. “And if she could show that, whatever the conditions were that supported the appointment of the conservator 13 years ago, no longer exist, she could make her case.”

“But, in order to make that discussion, I believe that she would need to support her allegations by something other than just personally convincing statements of how dreadful the conservatorship is,” he included.

The next step, according to Stutman, would be an evidentiary hearing. “Britney might take the stand, she could call psychiatists to the stand, she might call any number of witnesses to the stand to show, whatever it is that she feels she needs to show to show that the conservatorship is no longer needed,” he said.

When asked the length of time that procedure might take, Stutman approximated that it would likely take “a couple of months” however stressed that he had “no real basis to judge.”

As for Britney’s opportunities for success, the experienced attorney discussed that without hearing “real evidence” it was tough to judge. “All I know is what I’ve heard her say, I have not heard a shred of proficient medical evidence. Nobody has stepped forward and stated, I am a board certified psychiatrist or I am a licensed practicing psychologist, and I have actually evaluated her and I’ve interviewed her and I’ve talked to people around her, and I have actually done basically a forensic evaluation of her, and she is completely capable.”

“I haven’t heard any of that,” he continued. “I have heard her grumbling bitterly, and movingly, about the impact of this conservatorship on her life. And the fact that she can say so, definitely indicates that she’s quite efficient in understanding what’s going on. And I suspect is quite able to manage her own affairs.”

“However that’s simply me checking out the paper which’s not evidence, I’m scared.” he included. “So I have no concept as an attorney, whether she would win or not. If I were asked to wager on it, I think I would bet with her. But that’s probably more of a psychological response than something that is grounded in difficult legal analysis.”
