Amanda Bynes has chosen to end her conservatorship after nearly 9 years. Page Six reported that Bynes filed good documents on Wednesday in order to terminate her conservatorship.

The 35-year old former actress submitted a petition to end the conservatorship of both herself and the estate at the Ventura County Superior Court. Bynes had her full paperwork in order, which means she has full intention to see this through.

Bynes also filed all the necessary paperwork in order to prove that she of a sound state of mind at the time of filing. The capacity declaration records of the conservatee have to be updated, and require records from their doctors, therapist or religious healing practitioner.

The Nickelodeon star underwent a conservatorship arrangement with her mother, Lynn Bynes, in August 2013. That led to Lynn Bynes having complete legal control over her affairs in person, medical or financial capacities.

Bynes and other concerned parties will have to attend a hearing scheduled for March 22nd. Amanda Bynes was initially placed under the conservatorship after she allegedly lit a small fire in a stranger’s driveway. She was subsequently held involuntarily in a psychiatric facility. The star has still struggled with addiction throughout the years, though she seeks to terminate the conservatorship.
