Britney Settlement Papers: Blow By Blow

7/25/2008 7:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Britney Spears trial is over. The case has officially settled.
Click to read the documents!
Under the terms of the settlement filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, before July 30, Brit must pay K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Kaplan, $250,000 for fees.

As for child support, K-Fed has scored. As we first reported, he's getting 5k a month more -- it's gone from $15,000 to $20,000 a month.

The agreement does not mention visitation, but we know Brit has three days and one night a week with the kiddies and that will increase as time goes on. We're told by fall, she'll have a second overnight a week.

Brit never asked for custody, because she's still under a conservatorship. So K-Fed has sole custody and she has visitation rights. We're told Brit is ecstatic.

I am so sick of everyone beating up on K-Fed...the man has a right to fight for custody of children. He ONLY did that when Britney started acting up..shaving her head, driving crazy, hanging out in public bathrooms with the paps, dating a crazy pap etc. Even HER parents realize he is not a bad guy. Of course he is to get more money to support his children!He currently has full custody! If it was the other way around she would get more money! I understand her die hard fans will never see this, but at some point we have to wake up. I wish them both well!

If it were the other way around she wouldn't get any money nor ask for money......K-Fed doesn't have any! He does have full custody of two money-makers now.

What mother wouldn't WANT to have custody of their kids after a divorce?! Brit is pathetic.

WakeUp: You should wake up! Since when does it cost $20,000 a month to provide for your children? I'd love to see how much Kevin Federline makes a year, without Britney's support, so we can see what he is providing exactly. And, if it were the other way around she wouldn't get anymore money, because he doesn't have any to give!

Get real, if it were the other way around Britney wouldn't get anything as K-Fed has yet to earn a living. Sure a father has the right to go for custody, but HE filed and she still had to pay for his attorney. He wouldn't want to have to pay that out of his 20,000 per month. Wouldn't be able to hop to Vegas and pretend he is a somebody. But with the babies. he is set. Plus she takes them off his hands. What will happen if they get 50/50? Most I've seen no one pays at 50/50. What will K-Fed do then? Hire another attorney that Britney can pay for?

I get that Brits under her fathers thumb. But Fed-ex has no job. He sit's on his fat ass all damn day and now she has to pay for his laywers fees? I really hope that once she is in control of her life again she will drag his ass in court and demand thoes babys back. He may be a good father but, God man, have some pride, pay your own way.

Jobless women who are raising the kids consistently take their husbands to the cleaners every day. They end up with the kids, the house, the lawyers fees paid, child support, and alimony.

I see a double standard perpetuated by Cyn and those of her ilk that is comical.

None of you would blink if it was the HUSBAND with all the money and flashing his one-eyed yogurt thrower all over town and acting crazy. You'd all shout from your pedestals, "YOU GO GIT HIM GIRL".

Pathetic.

Whatever    

I say congrats to Britney for finally waking up. I feel she did the right and only thing she could do. LEGALLY SHE WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN HER KIDS BACK UNTIL HER FATHER ENDS THE CONSERVATORSHIP. Once that is done, then Britney can prove she is able to have 50/50 custody. And for everyone who is ripping on Britney for only caring about gettiing back to work, well, DUH, she needs to prove herself and needs to start creating income again. I say good on both part of Britney and Kevin Federline and hope that they both can continue to work together.

I believe that the custody arrangement is 60/40 in Kev's favor, is that right? So if she's getting MORE custody, why should she have to pay him MORE child support. The more she interacts with her children, the less she should have to pay--not more. I wonder if Kevin paid Britney any child support when she actually had custody of the kids? And I wonder how much it was? $300 or so a month like NORMAL people? I can't help but wonder if Kevin pays Shar any child support? Or does he just slide her the pipe every once in a while to keep her quiet?

Britney has proved everyone that doubted her wrong. As you all can tell money don't matter when it comes to her kids. Not very many men out there would pay to see their kids. It's alot easier to have the mother deal with them. I am just glad she didn' give up like mose people would do.
