The 26-year-old actress - whose father Michael staged an unsuccessful intervention with her on Friday amid fears she is drinking and using drugs again - is said to be looking into filing a protection order against him.
A source close to Lindsay told gossip website TMZ that Lindsay feels the only way to stop her father from interfering in her life is to take legal action.
The troubled starlet - who recently cut Michael out of her life after he recorded their telephone conversation during which she was fighting with her mother Dina and made it public - will allegedly meet with a lawyer in New York next week and has the full support of her mother Dina, the Daily Mail reported.
