Amanda Bynes' Parents Seek Conservatorship

Amanda Bynes’ parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes, will go to court Friday morning to request a temporary conservatorship over their daughter and her financial and personal affairs.

E! News confirmed the parents’ joint decision to appeal after Amanda was detained Monday evening on a 5150 hold.

The actress was caught setting a fire around 8:30 p.m. in the driveway of a stranger’s residential home in Thousand Oaks, California—the same city Amanda grew up in.

As we reported, Amanda will not be charged with any crimes.

Under California law, the 5150 hold expires after 72 hours, enough time for a psychiatric evaluation to determine if she’s a potential danger to herself or others.

If the judge grants her parents’ conservatorship, they’ll be legally in charge of Amanda’s estate for as long as the court determines. Lynn and Rick will have present evidence that their daughter is in an unstable state of mind, one so detrimental, it makes handling her own affairs impossible.
