If Brit And Kevin Want To Keep Their Boys They Have Rules To Follow!
Britney Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline have a long list of rules to follow if they want to keep their boys -- Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1. The results of custody case were revealed this evening, with the court finding Britney a 'habitual, frequent, and continuous user of controlled substances.'
Both Kevin and Britney must adhere to the following:
*Neither can take Sean and Jayden out of state without the written consent of the other.
*They cannot make derogatory statements about each other.
*They both must complete the "Parenting Without Conflict" program -- they must enroll by the end of this week.
*Britney and Kevin are both forbidden from using corporal punishment with the children or allowing anyone else to.
*They are required to engage in joint co-parenting counseling -- both sides must decide on selection of a therapist by week's end.
*Neither Britney nor Kevin may consume alcohol or non-prescription controlled substances 12 hours prior to taking custody of the children.
*They must ensure that any prospective childcare professionals hold valid Red Cross infant CPR training.
Britney must additionally:
*Attend individual counseling at least once a week to address parenting issues.
*Meet with a parenting coach for a minimum of 8 hours a week, in at least two sessions a week. The coach is to observe her parenting skills and her interaction with her sons and provide Kevin with a written progress report by October 22.
*In addition, the coach will provide lawyers on both sides with written reports, and will appear in court at the ex-couple's next hearing on Nov. 26.
*Based on the evidence presented, the Court found that there is a habitual, frequent, and continuous use of controlled substances by Britney, and she will have to undergo testing for controlled substances and alcohol.
*The testing shall be conducted twice per week on random dates and times, and the results will be forwarded to the court.
Custody will remain 50/50 for each parent if the rules are followed and Britney's tests come back clean; Kevin's request of 70/30 was not granted.
