LATEST: Pop star Britney Spears and her ex-husband Kevin Federline reunited in court on Tuesday (24Jun08) to discuss the custody status of their two young children.
The former couple has been locked in a custody battle over sons Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one, since their split in November 2006.
Spears, 26, is reportedly seeking to revise her current visitation schedule - which allows her monitored visits with the children three times weekly, according to
The pop star was seen entering the court with her father, Jamie, who remains conservator of her legal and financial affairs until next month's hearing (31Jul08).
Spears is said to have rehired former lawyer Laura Wasser in a bid to regain joint custody of her two young sons.
Wasser, who resigned as the star's legal counsel last year (07), was seen entering the courtroom along with a lawyer working for Spears' conservatorship.
Federline's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan tells, "Our goal is to settle what we can without a trial to achieve what's in the best interest of the children. But whatever can't be resolved with a private mediator will be brought to trial."
The pair will face a custody trial in August (08) if they are unable to reach an agreement out of court.
Spears was initially awarded joint custody of her sons following the breakdown of her marriage, but she was stripped of the privilege earlier this year (08) after she was committed to a psychiatric facility to treat an alleged bi-polar disorder.
