Because of the usage of drugs she was not able to make coherent decisions and Lynn Organ, her mother was given the right to become her conservator. The Nickelodeon star needs to take permission from her mother to make any financial decision.
Three years back, paperwork was submitted in 2018 to continue the conservatorship for a couple of years more. Last year in Feb 2020, Bynes updated her Instagram account with an explanation that she no longer feels the need to have a conservator and needs the support of her fans.
Her mother Lynn Organ recently filed a status report in July 2021 post which a judge decided to extend conservatorship further till March 8, 2023, after reviewing her documents.
Bynes wanted to fight and even went to court after her conservatorship was extended until 2023 in September 2021. But her efforts went in vain as the court did not accept her request for freedom.
However, her lawyer reportedly defended the court’s judgement by saying, “Her conservatorship is not extended through March 2023. It is open day to day.”
He further said, “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.”
Recently, Amanda Bynes’ conservatorship was terminated on March 22 which will end the legal arrangement.
