Two days after hitting the links with Jamie Spears, Kevin Federline arrived in court Monday for a hearing over legal fees in his custody battle with Britney Spears.

Still sporting a Mohawk, and wearing a dark gray suit, Federline arrived looking trim. Seated in the front row of the courtroom, he chatted with Jamie Spears, who was in the second row, as they waited for the judge to take the bench.

According to a source, Britney’s new custody attorney, Stacy Phillips, plans to dispute a $500,000 tab from Federline’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan – which Spears was ordered by the court to pay – as well as a $600,000 bill from the law firm of Trope & Trope, who previously represented her in the custody case.

In the afternoon, attorneys representing Jamie Spears, who is serving as temporary co-conservator for his troubled daughter, will appear before a probate court commissioner to discuss a timetable for updates on her psychiatric condition.
