Thanks, Divgirl. So the Court of Protection here would be the governing body? My understanding here and it is the same in Austria, that there are two routes to LPOA or guardianship orders - is there a difference in the UK between the two? Having read up a little here, there is one for health and welfare- decison making for health - then separately for financial purposes? That's how we do it in Austria.Here it would be a guardianship order and to be granted this the person would need to have an impairment that meant that they were unable to make/understand decisions either solely about their finances, or generally.
You cannot have no decision making capacity and also be working full time, touring, giving interviews, etc. Basically you can't have no decision making capacity and be popstar Britney Spears. I completely believe that she is unwell in some way, and she may well have fluctuating capacity because of that, but she seems like a prisoner full-time.
The States are pretty backwards in a lot of their legislation but I cannot understand how she fits the criteria to have this order over her. And supposedly the people who hold conservatorship are paid for their services. How convenient.
What's been going on with KF and the kids? I know they don't live with BrittanyI feel very sad for her. Kevin Federline is a nasty piece of shit and holds her to ransom with their kids, that she's not allowed to see. And her Dad is in control of her entire life.
She probably has zero idea of what a decent man is. It's heartbreaking.
I'm very uncomfortable with it all. My dad, after my mother died asked my brother and i to take over his finances both for his business and our family business. We didn't have to go to court for it, it was a family decision with a solicitor and the bank manager (we can do this in Austria).They live mainly with him, and he was trying to get $60,000 a month from her in maintenance at one stage. He's gone back to court with it several times.
Doesn't she only get like $2500 a month of her own money.They live mainly with him, and he was trying to get $60,000 a month from her in maintenance at one stage. He's gone back to court with it several times.
There's a lot of misconceptions surrounding modern slavery. I agree, Divgirl.It's modern day slavery. Just because she's white and American and gets an allowance that to some people is a lot of money doesn't mean it's not slavery.
If she doesn't have the capacity to understand and make decisions about where she can go and what she can do, then surely she doesn't have the capacity to sign and commit to work contracts?
I think bipolar was being thrown around. The 'gravely disabled' is very concerning though. Many of the disorders that are slung around by two bit psychologists are more often than not said about women.I don't know that that's ever been disclosed to be honest. I think I remember the media reporting bipolar disorder in 2007 but I'm not sure.
