Actress Amanda Bynes is attempting to end her nearly nine-year-long conservatorship.

“Amanda wishes to terminate her conservatorship. She believes her condition has improved and protection of the court is no longer necessary,” said the actress’ lawyer David A. Esquibias.

Bynes was under the conservatorship of her mother, Lynn, back in August 2013, after the Easy A actress allegedly set fire to a driveway.

A status report about Bynes’ health was filed and approved last September by a California court, with the next update scheduled for January 2023.

“It is open day to day. A status report regarding her health and welfare was recently filed and approved by the court. By law, the next status report is due in two years. Her conservatorship will terminate when it is no longer convenient for Amanda,” Esquibias said in a statement.

Esquibias said that the former Nickelodeon child star has been “doing great” ahead of her 35th birthday, attending California’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, meditating and going to SoulCycle classes. Bynes has also announced her engagement on Valentine’s Day 2020 to Paul Michael, who she met at her former sober living home.

“Amanda is very entrepreneurial. She is investigating fragrances. She is now considering perfume in addition to a clothing line. But, don’t get too excited. She is still a student at FIDM earning her degree,” Esquibias added about Bynes’ situation.
