Britney Spears Shows for Deposition

After numerous failures to show up, Britney Spears arrived for her deposition in her custody case at the office of Kevin Federline's attorney in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Spears is expected to be grilled about her past drug and alcohol use, her apparent failure to follow court orders and anything pertaining to her parenting skills.

"A deposition can be emotionally draining, because Kevin's lawyer can ask very personal questions about her relationship with her kids – and she'll be under oath," says L.A. family lawyer Lynn Soodik, who's not involved with the case.

Just a day prior, Spears's legal team filed a request with a court to be removed from the singer's custody case, citing a "breakdown in communications" with Spears. A hearing for that matter is set for Feb. 4. Until then, the firm of Trope & Trope still represents her.

Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, has already completed a number of depositions with Spears associates including her longtime friend, Alli Sims, former manager Larry Rudolph, and former bodyguard Daimon Shippen.

Kaplan will use evidence gathered from the depositions to try to persuade the court that Federline should be granted primary physical custody of their kids, Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1, in any final ruling.
