Britney and Kevin have reached a new custody agreement.

Britney now has the kids more than 50% of the time while touring, according to

Attorneys representing Britney and Kevin have filed documents with family law Commissioner Scott Gordon, stating there is a new temporary custody arrangement.

“During June, July and August, Britney will have physical custody of Jayden James and Sean Preston more than 50% of the time. The lawyers submitted a calendar outlining who gets the kids on which day.”

Custodial time will return to 50/50 once the tour is over.


Kevin Federline’s custody attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, weighed in regarding the new visitation arrangement, saying to


“As a matter of fact, there was a lot of effort put into the arrangement that was agreed upon to make sure that, although the days might change and the hours might change, that when she has to be on a particular venue, the amount of time doesn’t change.”

“You have to look at the overall time and not just a very limited focus on a particular week,” Kaplan said by way of explaining the time-frame misunderstanding. “That is really just an accommodation to ensure that she can meet her commitments for performing and meet her obligations and desires as a parent.”

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon “signed off” on the new arrangement, which was reportedly filed under seal.

“The whole plan and structure of the tour as it’s related to custody was that the venues are in a hub…so that Kevin can be in that area [on] days where the kids are going to be with Britney,” Kaplan said. “They don’t sacrifice her commitments to a particular venue and…the kids, while the house might look different, the scenery might look different, the custodial time with the parents doesn’t look different.”

It is unknown what the agreement will be for Britney’s Australian leg of her “Circus” tour, but Kaplan believes it will be similar.

“Whatever conditions existed before the tour, as far as when and under what particular circumstances custody will be exercised, they are the same here as they would be in Europe, Australia, anywhere-so the whole plan is to have the parents accommodate each other without making the kids have any kind of adjustment.”
