A court commissioner ruled on October 3 that Britney Spears may visit her two young sons, but her ex-husband Kevin Federline will retain primary custody of the children.
Superior Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon was expected to issue an order detaling the visitation rights, said Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan. Federline attended the hearing but Spears did not. Her attorney, Sorrell Trope, did not speak to reporters.
Court spokesman Allan Parachini said Spears would be allowed monitored visits every other day.
Federline, 29, and Spears, 25, were ordered to return to court October 26 for another hearing. The two had previously shared custody of two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James.
An October 1 order for Spears to temporarily surrender them to Federline came after she failed to produce a California driver's license while also missing a court-ordered drug test, Trope told "People" Magazine.
California Department of Motor Vehicles spokesman Mike Marando said Wednesday that Spears had been issued a temporary driver's license in Santa Monica.
