Amanda Bynes' conservatorship has come to an end. During a hearing on Tuesday, the conservatorship over Bynes' person and estate was terminated, with Judge Roger Lund of the Ventura County Superior Court in California congratulating the actress, wishing her good luck, and praising all parties for doing a "fantastic job."
Bynes was not at the hearing in person, rather her attorney, David A. Esquibias, was there on her behalf. Prior to the court's decision, Esquibias told ET what's next for the star.
"I’m excited for her. She is excited. We’re all excited and we’re all anxiously looking forward to Amanda living a life as a private and normal citizen. Ms. Bynes’ parents have both been very supportive throughout the entire conservatorship, and have helped her work towards a positive transition into the real world, which was the goal from the beginning of the legal arrangement," Esquibias said. "Ms. Bynes has done very well in a very short period of time that she’s been [living at the structured community for women.] Now she’s able to live on her own independently and free of the conservatorship. Besides normalcy as a person and a student, I know that she is looking forward to what her next step is going to be."
As for what she's looking to do professionally, Esquibias added, "One of the things that she’s talking about is a fragrance line and possibly a clothing line, while she is concentrating on school. She is very creative, so she’s trying to find an outlet for that. I have not heard her say that she’s interested in returning to becoming an actress, but I wouldn’t rule that out. She has a new life ahead of her and she is so young… She was a great actress. I’m sure many people would love to see her return to acting."
The court had tentatively granted the 35-year-old actress' petition to terminate the conservatorship ahead of Tuesday's hearing, where the ruling was made official. "Petitioner has provided facts that the conservatorship is no longer needed. The confidential Capacity Declaration filed 02/22/22 concludes that conservatee has capacity to give informed consent to any form of medical treatment," a court document obtained by ET on Monday read. "The court determines that the conservatorship is no longer required and that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship of the person no longer exist."
On Monday, a source told ET, "Amanda Bynes' parents are very happy for her. They can't wait to see the next chapter of her life. They are excited at how well she is doing. They are ready to move forward and for the conservatorship to end as well."
Additionally, Esquibias confirmed that Bynes "has located a rental in the Los Angeles area, which she intends to share with [her fiancé] Paul [Michael]."
