Quote: “Wednesday’s hearing was just to hear from Britney. She made it clear that she wants to end the conservatorship but she hasn’t asked to do so formally. The next step is to file a petition to terminate the order – and then the court would have a hearing,” states the Los Angeles top family law attorney. Christopher C. Melcher continued stating “For Britney, I don’t know what the evidence is going to be when she does make a motion to terminate. Can she bring in acquaintances that have seen her daily activities, who can attest that there’s been no erratic behavior? Or has she been isolated so much that she doesn’t have any of those favorable witnesses?”
