Washington, July 31 : Britney Spears's father Jamie's conservatorship over the singer's affairs, is likely to be extended or made permanent, when it comes up for a final court review on July 31, according to an expert.

Terry K. Wasserman, a mental health attorney not involved in the case, said that it is possible that the court will extend Jamie's control over her daughter.

"I would be very surprised if the court ends her father's control so soon. It's rare for someone to regain their capacity in just 60 days," People quoted Wasserman, as saying.

Two months ago, the 'Toxic' singer's attorney Samuel Ingham testified that Britney was unfit to take part in legal proceedings.

The pop star's father was named temporary conservator of her affairs on Feb. 1 following his 26-year-old daughter's two forced hospitalisations in January.

He has sole authority over whom she has contact with, and has hired security guards to watch her 24 hours a day.

Her father also shares control with another lawyer over her multimillion-dollar estate.

"Britney can only regain control of her life if she proves to the court - backed by medical experts - that she's regained her health," Wasserman said.
