OXNARD, Calif. - A judge has granted Amanda Bynes' mother a temporary conservatorship over the former child actress.

Ventura County Judge Glen Reiser ruled Friday that Richard and Lynn Bynes should be allowed to limited control of their 27-year-old daughter's personal affairs, including medical treatment.

Reiser said a mental health court has control over Bynes' medical treatment, but if she is released from a psychiatric facility then her mother will have authority to decide treatment.

The former star of Nickelodeon shows "All That" and her own variety series has been in a psychiatric hospital since last month. Authorities placed her in the hospital after she started a small fire in the driveway of a house in her hometown of Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Lynn Bynes will also have control over her daughter's finances.
