Britney Spears and her ex Kevin Federline renegotiated their custody agreement regarding their two sons. In the new agreement, Federline will be awarded 70 percent custody of the children while Spears will receive 30 percent. He also will be granted more child support money for their 12- and 13-year-old sons. In August 2018, the new agreement was established between the parents, but they tried out the arrangement before implementing it, and it officially became effective on August 28, 2019. Formerly, they split custody 50-50 between them, and, at one time, Britney Spears lost custody entirely of her children. One reason it is suspected that the agreement was modified was because her father who serves as the guardian over her legal and financial affairs allegedly physically abused her younger son.

When initially establishing a child custody agreement, specific needs may be addressed. As children grow up and circumstances change for parents such as their finances, their health, and their residences, modifications may be required to update the agreement to accommodate everyone’s needs. To ensure that the process of renegotiating a child custody agreement goes smoothly, and each party believes that their needs are met, it is wise to retain a lawyer to review and implement the necessary changes.
