The legal team for Britney Spears has once again urged her father Jamie Spears to resign as her conservator.

A new court document filed by Britney's lawyer Mathew Rosengart on Monday has requested Jamie be suspended immediately.

Mathew's criticisms are also directed at Jamie's response to the motion to remove him as conservator.

As part of his response, Jamie offered his resignation when the time was right.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Mathew said, "Mr. Spears was forced to concede in his Aug. 12, 2021, 'First Response' to Britney Spears's Petition to remove him that he must depart — and his departure is now inexorable.

"As we wrote in our new filing with the Court, however, the quid pro quo preconditions that Mr. Spears sought in his Aug. 12, 2021, court filing are inappropriate and unacceptable."

"Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father," he added. "Nor does Mr. Spears have the right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting the terms of his removal. This is not about him, it is about the best interests of his daughter, which as a matter of law, mandate his removal."

"Even putting aside the legal issues requiring his prompt removal, if he loves his daughter, Mr. Spears should resign now, today, before he is suspended," Mathew continued. "It would be the correct and decent thing to do."

Jamie held the role as estate conservator for the past 13 years.
