today just ended the conservatorship that has controlled britney spears life than money for almost 14 years now the ruling marks an end of what spear says described as a quote, demoralizing and traumatizing chapter of her life. yeah. her attorney had said in a court filing last month that his client wanted to win the conservatorship immediately. >> and the singer's father, jamie spears also agreed to step down as her financial advisor jamie spears first saw a conservatorship for his daughter in 2008 as the pop star underwent a series of public mental health struggles fueled in part by heavy media coverage. joining right now is attorney graham doubt. he's with bar and young attorneys in greetings. welcome. it was certainly britney is relieved. her fans are thrilled, but in a practical sense. what does it mean for her. exactly. >> well, i think right now, it
5:31 pm
means that is kind of a last line from first to make decisions for she's been under the conservatorship for over a decade in she now has a self determination to make decisions about her finances or care who spend time with what contracts changes in june is that it's a big moment for. obviously this case garnered a lot of attention. the free britney. >> fans showing up. but there were also a lot of people there in la outside the courtroom that weren't necessarily britney fans. but had issues with the idea of conservatorships. do we need to as a society re examine exactly what that is. who needs them. can you explain that issue a little bit. >> i know we price in northern california. but the pandemic is allowed open up zoom capabilities. so we appeared so, you know, for me and actions mosque courthouse in. i can tell you that this is shaken up court appoint counsel for cherries. other
5:32 pm
people that are involved with the concerns are processed in. there's a lot of rethinking going on conservative process. how procedure should go for how much a voice that concert. he should have. i don't think that we should get rid of it by any means. i think that the conservatorship proceedings are good tool. and last line of defense for people that really don't having the ability to manage their personal welfare finances. but i'm passing these type of situations living is. a good idea to kind of take another look at the scene either ways to improve it. i think this is a great opportunity to improve this area lot, which i for one is times and bell times that there is a proven it. >> our older folks usually the ones who are in need of this and how hard is it from a legal standpoint, too. implement one. and what are some of the challenges
5:33 pm
surrounding the whole process. >> yes. so definitely the by and large want connection or any guidance or vision and chances are you're dealing with a conservative because of your mother, father and grandparents on. this is of proceeding in that vols mostly the elderly just the way it turns out the people that are this is kind of built for them. but it also includes people that have other problems managing their finances. i i i think that, you know, getting the conservatorship depends on the facts. but it given temporary conservatorship is something that we've done pretty quickly at the circumstances require it but a general conservatives talk to get it takes a long time slot i think that crosses is fairly fairly but again,
5:34 pm
this one is this instance of britney spears. i think impose our attorneys and people learn the to to really look weighs i would say a lot of people wouldn't even know what a conservatorship is had it not been. >> for her. but yeah, i guess what would just begs the question after 14 years of of being. in this situation. arthur checks and i mean, why did it go on for so long. i think that we're going to find out. i think that. >> britney's attorneys that a priest green's lawyer and his party get to the bottom of a lot of questions. but you know. from what i can tell outsider looking it looks like. you know, britain may have agreed to this this conservatorship and then. didn't really know that she can get out of it and it doesn't appear that anyone found any petition to put a

5:36 pm
for them. but, you know, with great power abused can can be conducted and i think, you know, here is a group that unfortunately this a situation where i think it's really exposed to potential problems of of unchecked power were a situation where, you know, the conservator really concealing potentially concealing. the the the most common. but we don't know, you know, this is a ongoing process that is, you know, britney is free work. there's this. this fight over what happened in. how much money is going to go where that fire just start. yeah. and certainly when vast sums of money are it lends itself to a. >> the tension for abuse for sure. thank you so much for joining graham doubt ease with barr and young attorneys in
