Amanda Bynes is aiming to end her conservatorship after nearly nine years. Bynes’s mother, Lynn Organ, was granted temporary conservatorship in 2013 after the actress allegedly set a driveway on fire and was hospitalized on an involuntary psychiatric hold. Her mom then gained full conservatorship in 2014.
Bynes filed a petition on Feb. 23 to end her conservatorship. She also filed a capacity declaration on Feb. 22, as California requires all conservatees to provide updated information on their mental state from their physician or other medical practitioner. A hearing is set for March 22 in Oxnard, Calif.
Her mother supports the termination, and she expects the conservatorship will come to an end on or around the upcoming court date.
