Amanda Bynes' conservatorship will undergo another status report in 2023.

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, a status report regarding the Hairspray actress's health was filed and approved by a California court with the next update scheduled for January 2023.

Bynes's lawyer David Esquibias told PEOPLE in a statement reports of Bynes's conservatorship being extended to 2023 were incorrect.

"Her conservatorship is not extended through March 2023. It is open day to day," he said. "A status report regarding her health and welfare was recently filed and approved by the court. By law, the next status report is due in two years. Her conservatorship will terminate when it is no longer convenient for Amanda."
