Britney's visitation rights reduced

Britney Spears has not regained shared custody of her sons. In a ruling stemming from the October 26 custody hearing between Spears and ex Kevin Federline, LA court commissioner Scott M. Gordon granted the popstar just two daytime visits a week, plus an overnight visit. Additionally, Gordon denied Spears's attorney's request to stop the singer's twice-weekly drug tests, ordering that she will have to continue the random tests in order to maintain her visitation rights. In last Friday's hearing, a court-appointed parenting coach, Lisa Hacker, reported that when they are with their mother, Sean Preston and Jayden James have no real schedule or routine. Hacker explained, "The environment in the house ranges from chaotic to almost somber with little communication at all... During all three of my visits, [Spears] rarely engaged with the children in conversation or play." Hacker also noted, however, that Spears's parenting lapses are nothing she "would characterize as abusive in a traditional sense." The court order said that Hacker on three different days "made attempts to meet with [Spears] in order to comply with the Court's orders. [Spears] failed to meet with Hacker on those occasions." In light of Hacker's report, the court also ordered that Spears must get her homes childproofed by November 2, meet with coach Hacker for two hours every week, and ensure that Sean and Jayden are properly secured in child safety seats whenever she drives with them. These orders are in addition to those set forth on September 17, and will remain in effect until further notice.
