Britney Spears‘ attorney has officially asked the court to make Jodi Montgomery the permanent conservator of her person, according to a legal filing.

In the documents filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court, Spears, through her lawyer, has requested for Montgomery to be appointed as the new full-time conservator of her person now and in the future.

Furthermore, Spears is also asking that her father, Jamie Spears, resign from his position altogether and cites a job well done on behalf of Montgomery. Montgomery was Spears’ acting conservator while Jamie temporarily stepped away from the position in 2019 due to “health reasons.”

Britney's father is currently co-conservator alongside officials at the Bessemer Trust Company.

The documents suggest Jodi should be given permission to retain caretakers and security guards for Britney and prosecute civil harassment restraining orders. Britney also wants to give Montgomery the power to communicate with medical personnel on her behalf.

On Jamie's part, his lawyer Vivian Thoreen stated in a previous interview that the singer's father “would love nothing more than to see Britney not need a conservatorship.” In early March interview with CNN, the attorney said, “Whether or not there is an end to the conservatorship really depends on Britney. If she wants to end her conservatorship, she can file a petition to end it.”

During the chat, Thoreen added that Jamie “is not suggesting that he is the perfect dad or that he would receive any ‘Father of the Year' award.” She added, “Like any parent, he doesn't always see eye-to-eye on what Britney may want. Jamie unquestionably loves Britney, and he misses her very much. But he also respects her, and he wants to give her autonomy and space.”
