The singer's life has been controlled by a court-ordered conservatorship since 2008 after her public breakdown.
A temporary conservator, Jodi Montgomery, was appointed in 2019 after her father Jamie Spears stepped down due to health issues.
Spears is now requesting that Montgomery be made permanent.
What are the conservatorships?
Spears' conservatorship is split into two parts - one is for her estate and financial affairs, the other is for her as a person.
