Though Britney did not attend the hearing, all parties consented to the decision. It is heard that both the conservatorship of the estate and person is ending. Britney’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart said, “What that means is we have set up a financial safety net for Britney, in terms of a new trust. All of the assets that are outside of the existing trust will be transferred by the existing conservator of the estate… into that trust.”

He also added, “I’m so proud of her. I thank her. I thank her for her courage and voice and power… We believe it was the right result.” Then Mr. Mathew stated, “Ms. Spears has made her wishes known about ending the conservatorship she has endured for so long and she has pleaded with the Court to ‘let her have her life back,’ without an evaluation, recently attending two Court hearings and asking this Court directly to end the conservatorship. It is respectfully submitted—with the consent of all parties—that the time has come.”

Britney’s father, Jamie Spears suspended from the role of conservator of the estate earlier. He also expressed his support for ending the conservatorship.
