Reports have claimed that just a day after Britney Spears' court-appointed lawyer resigned, the star's mom, Lynne Spears, has asked the judge to allow her daughter to hire her own private lawyer to finally get the ball rolling regarding the finalization of her conservatorship.
Lynne filed legal documents, obtained by TMZ, in which she what may have been in the case thirteen years ago when the conservatorship was established is no longer the case. Lynne's lawyer says Britney is able to now care for herself and further notes she "had to perform in front of millions of people, has had to manage hundreds of performances, has had to use her artistic and creative talents to prepare for shows by choreographing each and every move for and interacting with many co-performers, and has had to rehearse and perform for many thousands of hours over the years."
Lynn's lawyer further supports the ten demands Britney made during her June 23rd hearing but says the first among them must be the appointment of counsel of her [Britney's] choosing because that will in turn impact every other of her commands.
There is still great dispute over whether Britney knew she could even end her conservatorship.
Interestingly, Lynne was one of Britney's perpetrators when she testified last month. Furthermore, there could be an uphill climb for Lynn as the judge could easily dismiss the documents as she doesn't have the standing to present such documents. Britney's mom is set to request a hearing on July 14th.
Last month, thirty-nine-year-old Britney testified in a heart-wrenching statement and clarified the life she leads while under her "abusive" conservatorship ordered by her father Jamie Spears.
In 2008, after her public breakdown which included her shaving her head, smashing up a car with an umbrella, and going to rehab, meant that a conservatorship was placed on Britney for her own safety.
Fast-forwarding thirteen years, Britney's recent shocking testimony accused the conservatorship of being "abusive" by not allowing her any privacy, working her constantly, and even going as far as to have her strip off naked in front of nurses to prove she wasn't hiding narcotics. Oh, and not to mention having an IUD inserted against her will so she couldn't conceive a baby.
However, as the star approaches forty years old, fans have been wary of whether the conservatorship is within Britney's best interest. The FreeBritney.net movement launched officially in 2009, with an overarching statement on why they as a collective believe Britney no longer needs the conservatorship this far into her life and career.

"During the twelve years of Spears' conservatorship she has repeatedly toured the world, released multiple albums, and worked on a variety of television shows," the site pointed out. "Her conservators decide whether or not she works, as she cannot enter into contracts for herself because she is legally not her own person. Britney Spears needs permission from her conservators to leave her house or spend any of her own money."
Judge Brenda Perry recently refused documents presented the removal of her conservatorship which were presented in November, but Britney's testimony is yet to be discussed in the course system.
