With Britney Spears hospitalized under a 14-day hold, attorneys arrived in court Monday for another custody hearing, but the session was postponed until later this month.

Lawyers for Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline were at the downtown courthouse with two new players: an attorney for Spears’s father Jamie, who as temporary co-conservator has been granted widespread powers over her life, and the other co-conservator, lawyer Andrew Wallet.

Spears, 26, currently has no visitation rights of their sons, Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1, and has been fighting Federline, 29, in family court for more contact with the children.

The hearing had been scheduled to discuss the issue of Spears getting monitored visitation in a “therapeutic setting.” The hearing was reset for Feb. 19.

Another hearing is set for later Monday before a different judge over the question of control of Spears’s affairs while she is treated at UCLA Medical Center’s psychiatric ward in her second hospitalization this year.
