Britney Spears will be asked questions today about her parenting skills and lifestyle by opposition lawyers in her child custody battle.

The Gimme More star is likely to face a grilling during her deposition, which will take place at The Office of her former husband Kevin Federline's legal team.

Spears will be obligated to give honest answers about matters pertaining to her past and her parenting capabilities, as she will be under oath.

The troubled star is looking to regain equal custody arrangements of her two sons with Federline after a Los Angeles court put an end to the system over fears for her children's well-being. The move followed damaging testimony from former staff as well as media reports about the singer missing drug tests and committing driving offences.

Currently, the 26-year-old is only allowed supervised visits with her children.

Federline's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan has questioned a number of Spears' friends and former employees in the past about the pop star's behaviour.

Previously the judge ruling in the case has criticised her for being a "habitual, frequent and continuous" user of alcohol and controlled substances and ordered to her to undergo regular drug tests and attend parenting sessions.
