Amanda Bynes is seeking to end her long-standing conservatorship after nearly a decade.  As we reported earlier, she filed her documents on Wednesday. Unlike Britney Spears, Bynes parents are all for ending her conservatorship.

Bynes is best known for her work in television and film throughout the 1990s and 2000s. She appeared in movies such as She’s the Man, What a Girl Wants and Easy A. As you may already know, Bynes went into a conservative arrangement with her mother in 2013.

Now it has emerged her parents Lynn and Rick Bynes support her efforts to end her conservatorship. Amanda’s problems with drug use, DUIs and endangerment triggered her parents to interfere in her life. Bynes also dealt with significant mental health issues in recent years.

Amanda was previously diagnosed with both bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. The 35-year-old’s decision to end the conservatorship comes after Britney Spears successfully fought to end her 13-year-long conservatorship in November. After suffering from various mental health issues she has formally requested the termination of the conservatorship by recently filing paperwork at the Ventura County Superior Court.

Amanda has remained on good terms with her parents unlike Spears. Bynes’ lawyer David A. Esquibas has said her parents agree with her that she has made ‘significant progress’ in managing her bipolar disorder. A hearing on the matter has been placed on the court docket at the end of March.
