Update (3/22/22) — The judge formally signed off on ending Amanda Byne’s conservatorship.
The Blast obtained legal documents outlining a court’s order granting Amanda Bynes’ request to end her conservatorship.
Amanda Bynes’ Conservatorship Is About To Be Legally Terminated!
The legal document states, “The petitioner must state facts showing that the conservatorship is no longer required. If the court determines that the conservatorship is no longer required or that grounds for the establishment of a conservatorship of the person or estate or both no longer exists the court shall make this finding and shall enter judgment terminating the conservatorship accordingly.”
It continues, “Petitioner has provided facts that the conservatorship is no longer needed. The Capacity Declaration filed on 2/22/22 concludes that the conservatee has the capacity give informed consent to any form of medical treatment. The court determines that the conservatorship is no longer required and that grounds for the establishment of a conservatorship of the person no longer exist. The court intends to grant the petition for termination and order the conservatorship of the person of Amanda Bynes be terminated.”
A tentative ruling was issued and there will be a final ruling/decision at the hearing tomorrow, March 22.
Basically, the judge signed off on the petition; however, it’s not an official record yet.
Bynes’ “trust” is not part of the conservatorship estate, so a petition for accounting would need to be filed in a separate trust case for the court to “entertain such a request.”Judge Grants Amanda’s Freedom Due To Her Capacity To Give ‘Informed Consent’
Judge Grants Amanda Bynes Freedom From Conservatorship Due To ‘Informed Consent’ Document
As we previously reported, Bynes’ parents, who are in charge of the conservatorship, are in favor of terminating the conservatorship.
The “Hairspray” actress detailed her amazing recovery in legal documents to terminate her conservatorship, including evidence she is no longer suffering from any “thought disorders.”
In the filing, obtained by The Blast, the actress is asking the court to end her ongoing conservatorship and is armed with specific evidence and medical documents proving she is ready for the transition.
To start, Bynes included a “capacity declaration” signed by a psychiatrist outlining her amazing turnaround from being hospitalized under a 5150 psychiatric hold to her current condition.
“Ms. Bynes has no apparent impairment in alertness and attention, information and processing, or ability to modulate mood and affect, and suffers no thought disorders,” the filing reads.
It continues, “Ms. Bynes’ psychiatrist further opines that Ms. Bynes has the capacity to give informed consent to any form of medical treatment.”
In the documents, Amanda’s attorneys outline the amazing recovery with details of her day-to-day activities including being an outstanding student at FIDM in Los Angeles.
“Ms. Bynes is a student at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, California. Ms. Bynes’ FIDM transcript indicates she consistently earns above-average grades,” it read.
It should be noted, the filing includes several of Amanda’s report cards that proves the outstanding work.

Also, the filing outlines Amanda’s home life and transition from hospitalization to living on her own. “Ms. Bynes has been living in a structured community for women since 2020. Initially, Mrs. Bynes lived in a transitional house where she practiced daily life skills, tended to her therapeutic needs, prepared for integration into a productive lifestyle, and worked towards developing a sustainable routine.”
It continues, “In 2021 Ms. Bynes transitioned to the apartment community, which offers an independent living environment for women posed to transition into an autonomous lifestyle. The independent living apartment provides continuous accountability through ongoing random toxicology screenings, weekly apartment checks, and a weekly case management session with her case manager.”
In a bid to terminate the conservatorship, the document states, “The case manager in the community reports Ms. Bynes consistently tests negative for illicit substances in her system. Ms. Bynes desires to live free of any constraint.”
