Britney Spears may get her wish. Her father reportedly filed a petition to end her court-ordered conservatorship.

According to CNN, which obtained a copy of the court filing, Jamie Spears said he believes his daughter should get a chance to “handle her own life.”

Jamie has been the conservator of his daughter’s estate since 2009.

In July, Britney testified that her father was guilty of conservator abuse. She claimed she had no say in her career or personal life.

“I'm not able to get married or have a baby I have a ID [IUD] inside of myself right now so I don't get pregnant. I wanted to take the I[U]D out so I could start trying to have another baby,” Spears said. “But this so-called team won't let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don't want me to have any children, any more children.”

In a statement obtained by NBC News, Britney Spears’ attorney said Tuesday’s court filing was a massive win, but he added that he will continue to hold Jaime accountable.

"It appears that Mr. Spears believes he can try to avoid accountability and justice, including sitting for a sworn deposition and answering other discovery under oath, but as we assess his filing — which was inappropriately sent to the media before it was served on counsel — we will also continue to explore all options," Rosengart said.

A hearing regarding the conservatorship was scheduled for Sept. 29. It’s unclear if that hearing will still take place.
