In legal documents obtained by TMZ, the judge for the case issued a tentative ruling on Monday, declaring Bynes' conservatorship is "no longer required."
A court hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, March 22, and it's almost certain the judge will make the decision official due to the fact that no one has objected to the actress' petition to end her conservatorship.
Bynes was first placed under a conservatorship back in 2013 following multiple episodes of bizarre behavior — including being put on a involuntary psychiatric hold after she allegedly started a small fire in a stranger's driveway — brought on by what she has said was bipolar disorder. The star has been sober for several years now after continuously attending AA meetings.
As OK! previously reported, Bynes' conservators, parents Lynn and Rick Bynes, have fully supported ending the conservatorship. The Hairspray actor's attorney David A. Esquibias revealed that Bynes has maintained a "great, loving relationship" with both of her parents and that they've consistently been "on the same page."
Her legal representative also confirmed that she's been working together with her mom and dad to get her physical and mental health on track so they can work towards their mutual goal of ending the legal bind.
As Bynes sought treatment in mental health facilities and treatment programs, her mother maintained legal control of her daughter's personal, medical and financial decisions.
This ruling has been a goal of the former child star's for a long time, as Bynes herself believed "her condition is improved and protection of the court is no longer necessary," Esquibias claimed in a February 23, statement.
During her turbulent decade, the She's All That star has continued to take classes at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising as she works towards her Bachelor's degree.
