After a late arrival by Britney to the courtroom, she has been partially granted her request for overnight visits.

Commish to Brit -- Nighttime Is the Right Time

Britney Spears will get one overnight visit with her kids per week.-- at least for now.

L.A. County Court Commissioner Scott Gordon partially accepted her lawyer's plea to give Spears monitored overnight visitation. Spears, who was in court, was sworn in as the afternoon hearing began. She testified, but we don't know what she said.

Spears left the courtroom visibly upset. The overnight visits will be monitored. The parties have not reached an agreement on who the monitor will be.

A court spokesman said the result today was a compromise between the two sides -- Brit wanted more, K-Fed didn't want her to have any overnights.

K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, said after the hearing that he met with Brit's lawyers during the lunch hour. The attorneys told the court that they all agreed to "slightly increase" Brit's visitation. In other words, K-Fed agreed to give Brit a break, and a chance.

Kaplan said protections were in place for the kids.

I don't know what to say about this, to be honest I think Britney needs to seeks some more help in regards to whatever emotional or other problem she's going through.

I hope Mark Vincent didn't agree to her mother being the overnight monitor, and I hope Kevin allows the nanny to accompany the monitor with the kids.

I don't know why, but I think there's something going own with Britney, what it is I don't know, but I hope she will get help, some kind of counselling of sort.

Kevin doesn't get to choose whether or not his nanny can come along. A court appointed or approved person is the only one Spears has to allow in her house.

Remember Britney's been ordered by the judge to get individual counseling sessions, so she is getting some help even if she's being forced to. Maybe those court appointed sessions will make her decide to go back to a therapist on her own volition and reach out for help in getting herself sorted.

I am so glad she gets one overnight visit, hopefully it will be increased soon! The boys went through a total lifestyle change when custody shifted. I hope they've been adjusting ok.
