Amanda’s lawyer David A. Esquibias told TMZ that the star’s decision to end her conservatorship has been years in the making, while she has the full support of her parents.
Her mother, Lynn, currently acts as the star’s conservator.
He also insisted that the move was not inspired by Britney Spears’ recent conservatorship legal battle, noting that Amanda has been working to end the legal matter since last year.
The attorney said that the timing of Amanda’s filing after Britney’s legal win was purely coincidental, while he added she’s never even mentioned the 40-year-old’s highly publicized battle.
Amanda’s lawyer said her conservatorship was never intended to be in place for her entire life and all parties involved hoped it would end.
Additionally, Amanda and her parents realized she’s made significant progress in coping with her bipolar disorder over the last two years.
The All That alum reportedly gained important structure and support in her life through attending AA, while she has been sober for the past three or four years.
Amanda is keeping busy as a student at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles and is receiving good grades as she works toward a Bachelor’s degree.
The outlet said the former child star is focused on using fashion as a creative outlet.
She also hopes to develop fragrances in the future.
The court documents obtained by Page Six, Amanda asked for the outside control over her person and her estate to be terminated.
The She’s The Man actress also filed paperwork giving an update on her mental state from her doctor.
A hearing to discuss Amanda’s petition to terminate the conservatorship is currently scheduled for March 22.
This past September, David told the outlet that when the conservatorship was “no longer convenient” then it could be ended.
He also gave an update on his client, saying she was “doing really well, besides anxiety and trauma.”
Back in March 2020, Amanda was ordered to enter a psychiatric facility by the judge in her conservatorship case.
Then in December of that year, Amanda was spotted for the first time in six months while out with her on-again off-again fianceé, Paul Michael.
Amanda’s filing comes months after Britney sought the end to the conservatorship over herself and her estate.
In November, she was released from her 13-year conservatorship after a long legal battle.
The pop singer was initially granted freedom from her father, Jamie, though certain parts of her life were still controlled or monitored by the court – including her multi-million dollar fortune.
Weeks later, she went on to gain control of her estate during her latest legal victory.
