Looks like it’s going to take a new year for Britney Spears to reach a new level of legal freedom.
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz has extended Jamie Spears’ conservatorship over his famous daughter through the end of the year.
“Regarding the conservatorship of the person, I understand that Ms. Spears is reluctantly agreeing to extend those letters,” Goetz said. “We are extending them until Dec. 31, 2008.”
A status hearing for the extended order has been set for Oct. 28.
“All orders remain in effect,” Goetz said, before delivering some good news for the apparently reluctant Spears.
“The order is without prejudice and is subject to early termination.”

Britney Spears’ conservatorship has been extended through the end of the year, Access Hollywood has learned.
Britney Spears’ legal team, minus the pop star, was back in court Thursday at Los Angeles Superior Court for a hearing concerning her temporary conservatorship.
A little over two hours after the hearing began, Commissioner Reva Goetz announced that Spears’ conservatorship would continue through the end of the year.
“[Ms. Spears is] reluctantly agreeing to an extension of the temporary letters to Dec. 31, 2008,” Goetz said.
As a result of the ruling, Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, will retain control over Britney’s personal life and finances.

Britney Spears’ father will retain control of the pop singer’s finances and personal affairs through the end of the year. Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz extended James Spears’ conservatorship over his daughter Thursday morning until the end of 2008.
Goetz opened the hearing by saying the singer “reluctantly agreed” to extend the arrangement, and scheduled an update hearing for October.
The pop singer’s father assumed control over her personal life and finances earlier this year after a series of high-profile incidents of erratic behavior that twice led to her being hospitalized.
Spears has since shown signs of improvement, settling a custody dispute with Kevin Federline, making successful TV cameos and working on an album this summer.
Neither Spears or her father appeared in court Thursday.
