    Britney Spears' mother has filed a series of legal motions to be kept informed of all matters regarding the singer's conservatorship.

    In the declaration filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Lynne Spears requests that her attorney be present for a Friday status hearing pertaining to her daughter's conservatorship and that she be heard before the court in a separate hearing on Wednesday.

    In 2008, after Spears' public meltdown, a Los Angeles court named Britney’s father, Jamie, and lawyer Andrew Wallet, permanent conservators of her affairs, allowing them to make decisions involving her assets. Wallet recently stepped down from his role.

    The request comes amid weeks of speculation surrounding the singer's current mental health condition.

    The pop star, 37, voluntarily checked into a mental health facility in recent months to help deal with her father’s ailing health, according to two sources close to Spears.
