Commish to Brit -- Nighttime Is the Right Time

10/11/2007 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears will get one overnight visit with her kids per week -- at least for now.

L.A. County Court Commissioner Scott Gordon partially accepted her lawyer's plea to give Spears monitored overnight visitation. Spears, who was in court, was sworn in as the afternoon hearing began. She testified, but we don't know what she said.

Spears left the courtroom visibly upset. The overnight visits will be monitored. The parties have not reached an agreement on choosing a different monitor than the one who is already in place.

A court spokesman said today was the result of a compromise between the two sides -- Brit wanted more, K-Fed didn't want her to have any overnights.

K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, said after the hearing that he met with Brit's lawyers during the lunch hour. The attorneys told the court that they all agreed to "slightly increase" Brit's visitation. In other words, K-Fed agreed to give Brit a break, and a chance.

Kaplan said protections were in place for the kids.

She got overnight visitation, ok, but will she stay home to be with her kids?

Judge made a mistake. This self-centered bitch only cares about herself. It will be a disgrace if they allow her "mommy Lynn" to be the monitor. Britney still shows no accountibility.

I thought the judge made the decision. Federlines attorney maks it sound as though Kevin is making the rules. And for him to say protectiions were in place, then why should he monitorhave to be there? Truly making the court sound not necessary. I am glad te children get to spend more time wth their mother.

She'll probably be out partying that night anyway so I'm sure the kids will be fine.

Comments like 'Kevins nothing but a sperm donor' and 'there's just something about him I don't like' are so ridonculous! Did you forget Britney actually MARRIED him? And that the judge believes him to be a better parent than HER? Birdbrains.

If the judge lets her mother be the monitor than he has completely folded and all will be lost in terms of possible reform.

I mean, look how well Lynne raised Britney. She she be the voice of reason???

BritorKFed Brit Totally    

She deserves to be with her children. If you watched the video earlier on msnbc they love their mom. She might make mistakes in her personal life but anyone who claims she doesn't love those two boys needs help. K-Fed is absolutely no better than Britney in fact, he is worse. What does he do to take care of his other children from his other baby's mamma? NOTHING! Seriously give the girl a break.

Britney fan's are pathetic    

why do people keep bringing up taking custody from the first girlfriend. Shar is a great person and a great mom. All you britney fans need to stop using that as a cop out. You really don't know that kevin is doing it for the money and just need something to say. STOP bringing Shar into this mess. She is doing what a good mother should do and taking care of her kids. Maybe all you britney fan's need to tell britney to do the same!!

To: #46 grammy:

Kevin is the Petitioner in the matter & has the option of agreeing or disagreeing to any changes. If the parties had been completely unable to reach a compromise, then the Commissioner would have stepped in & decided for them.

The court monitor IS the protection that the attorney was referring to. He's saying that one overnight visit has been approved, but that the court monitor will be present as a protection to the children. Hope that helps. ;-)
