Spears has had monitored visits in the last three months with her sons, two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James. Father, Kevin Federline has retained full custody since January.

Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan told People magazine, “It is a cautious step, but a step forward nonetheless… we are seeing signs of [Britney’s] progress, and consistency over time is something welcome by Kevin.”

Spears is currently under the conservatorship of her father, who holds control of her legal and personal affairs until a July 31 hearing.

Following yesterday’s hearing, Spears’ parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears stated, “We are so pleased with Britney’s progress, and we are appreciative of the court’s recognition of this progress.”

Spears will guest-star for the second time on the CBS sitcom, “How I Met Your Mother,” airing May 12.
