“We’re pleased that … the process of reinstating the children’s mother as a participant in their lives can commence,” Kaplan said Friday.
Kaplan and law firm partner Jim Simon spent two days working with Spears’s legal team on the visitation arrangement, Kaplan says. Under the terms of the agreement, details of which Kaplan would not disclose, Jayden, 1, and Preston, 2, will once again enjoy “participation of their mother in their lives,” Kaplan says.
The visits will begin “soon, very soon,” says Kaplan. He would not list specific dates.
Spears, 26, has not seen her boys since her Jan. 3 custody stand-off with police, leading to her first forced hospitalization in a psych ward.
The next day, in an emergency hearing, a court commissioner ruled he was awarding “sole legal custody and sole physical custody of the minor children” to Federline. The commissioner said Spears’s “visitation with the minor children is suspended pending further order of the court.”
