"The court finds and determines that the conservatorship of the person and the estate is no longer required," Judge Penny said in court Friday afternoon. "Therefore, effective today, the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears… is hereby terminated."

While Britney's conservatorship of the estate and of the person have been terminated, temporary conservator John Zabel will have "administrative powers" in Britney's trust and estate. Meanwhile, her personal conservator Montgomery will "be there for anything she needs," according to Montgomery's attorney Wright.

"What's next for Britney is up to one person — and this is the first time we can say this in a decade. It's up to Britney," he said. "Britney, as of today, is a free woman."
