    Another day, another development in the life of Lindsay Lohan!

    The 26-year-old actress is expected to check into rehab in California by 6 a.m. Friday. If she doesn't, she faces the risk of Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White issuing a warrant for her arrest.

    "She has to go [Friday] to also prove that she is taking it seriously, and then she can possibly move to another facility if it gets approved," a source tells E! News, adding, "Nobody knows what's going to happen."

    "She is currently doing OK," adds the source. "She was panicked earlier and was really scared because she felt the whole situation could have been more organized, and she expected that it should be."

    One person Linds won't be looking to for guidance on this whole situation anymore? Mark Heller.

    The actress's rep confirmed to E! News that she has retained longtime lawyer, Hlley, for counsel. When Heller was contacted Friday, he would not comment.

    But in the end, Lindsay "is ready for rehab," says the source.
