A judge plans to end the conservatorship of child star Amanda Bynes on Tuesday after nearly nine years, according to court documents  The Los Angeles Times reviewed.

The retired actress filed a request to end her conservatorship last month. Bynes is known for her roles in movies such as "Easy A" and "She's the Man," as well as Nickelodeon's "The Amanda Show."

"The court determines that the conservatorship is no longer required and that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship of the person no longer exist," Ventura County Superior Court Judge Roger Lund wrote.

"The court intends to grant the petition for termination and order the conservatorship of the person of Amanda Bynes be terminated," the filing stated.

Bynes also has a trust, but Judge Lund said it was beyond his purview.

The child star, now 35, was placed under conservatorship of her parents in 2013 after a series of erratic behaviors, including DUI incidents and drug use, ended with her attending court-ordered psychiatric care.

An attorney for Bynes' parents told TMZ that the family supports the conservatorship ending. The lawyer also said Bynes' move was not inspired by Britney Spears, whose conservatorship ended last year.
