Amanda Bynes' mother has agreed to adjust a financial portion of the conservatorship that she was granted over her daughter, who recently appeared to acknowledge having mental-health issues.

David Esquibias, Amanda Bynes' conservatorship attorney, told "Access Hollywood" that while Lynn Bynes will remain conservator for her daughter's estate, she will work with a private trust firm to ensure Amanda has necessary financial resources.

"My goal is to get her permanent adequate housing," Esquibias said, adding that he hoped the court would approve the change Friday.

The professional conservator will assume care of Amanda Bynes' day-to-day needs, including food, shelter and medications, People magazine said.

Esquibias additionally denied reports that former child-star Bynes, 28, had made threats against her parents. Although Lynn and Rick Bynes are planning a move from California, where Amanda Bynes now lives, to Texas, Esquibias said they and their daughter have had "very amicable communications over the last five days" and are "very proud" of Amanda's progress and love her very much. The next scheduled hearing on the conservatorship is scheduled for February.
