Britney Under Permanent Conservatorship

10/28/2008 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers in the Britney Spears conservatorship case have just asked the court commissioner to make her conservatorship permanent. And the judge said she would grant the request.

The conservatorship was scheduled to end on December 31.

Sources say one reason why Brit & Co. wanted to extend the conservatorship is that it makes it easier for her to regain custody of her kids -- the family law commissioner will feel more comfortable giving her added face time if there is a safety net.

The conservators will now also be responsible for handling her business affairs and career opportunities.

As for why they suddenly asked for a permanent conservatorship -- we're told the commish doesn't want to keep extending temporary power...that it makes more sense to make the conservatorship permanent and then just lift it when Brit is safe and sound.

Under the permanent conservatorship a medical team will oversee Britney's career to make sure what she does will not compromise her mental health.

The commish said, "The conservatorship is necessary and appropriate for the complexity of financial and business entities and her being susceptible to undue influence."

If it keeps her giving money to d**che bags in her life, then more power to her father and to those who care about her.

Poor Brit, it must be really bad. It is extremely difficult to gain conservator over any adult. Hence there is a lot more to this story than we are being told.

This is just so unfair... LOADS of celebrities have bipolar (Ben Stiller, Sting, etc) and yet NONE of them had a conservatorship ever. This is just because she's a young mother, her father should be ASHAMED OF HIMSELF. I hope all his wrong doing will get back to haunt him.

It is really sad to see, but at least the court has her best interest in mind. Mental illness can be quite painful.

I am sure she is trying to do whatever it takes to get her kids back. She made some bad choices, but most of us have. Her father should never have done this to her in the first place. She will bounce back better than ever.

Before some babies come on here crying unfair, you have to remember just 7 or so months ago, this girl was out of control. Mentally, she is NOT completely healed. That is a lengthy process that takes time.

She is doing a lot better, but it's too soon to just let her go out there alone. She has a mental illness and she has already proved she is not capable of properly taking care of herself BEFORE the conservatorship (Sam Lufti, ADNAN!!). Think people.

I was never comfortable with the idea of a family member being the conservator, and I am far less comfortable with the order being permenant.

So long as she does not complain I guess it is O.K. but extremely suspicious and in need of close court review. One thing for sure, when her "career" is over she will have far more money than without this support.

I hope the move to get her 50/50 custody of her boys comes sooner than later.

Oh that sounds like a plan. Have the medical team oversee her career.

Rosanna, are you serious?!? How old are you, 5??? I can't believe what you said about Britney's father. She will NOT BE AS WELL AS SHE IS TODAY IF IT WEREN'T FOR HER FATHER. That girl is much more better since her father took over and got rid of bad folks like Sam Lufti and others. Wow, how people have forgotten all that her father has done!
