The hearing marked the half-way point in Lohan's probation in connection with a necklace theft conviction.
The 25-year-old has been doing clean-up work at the L.A. County Morgue and attending court-ordered psychotherapy sessions.
Her last court appearance was on Dec. 14. She was supposed to have completed 12 more days of community service and four more counseling sessions.
"I'm pleased to say she has done it all on schedule," Judge Stephanie Sautner said at Tuesday's hearing.
Sautner set Lohan's next court date for Feb. 22 at 10 a.m.
The hearing was previously scheduled for Feb. 15, but the court will be dark on that day.
Because Lohan has an additional week, she must complete 15 days of community service and five therapy sessions before her neck check-up.
"Keep doing what youre doing," Sautner said, before adjourning the very brief hearing. "You appear to be doing it well."
The court-ordered community service is part of Lohan's sentence imposed last May when she pleaded guilty to stealing a $2500 necklace from a Venice jewelry store.
Lohan was already on probation for two drunken driving convictions from 2007.
She had some initial stumbles when she was first put on probation.
Lohan was sentenced to 30 days in jail in November after she admitted she violated the terms of her probation.
Prosecutors said she missed 12 of 20 scheduled workdays at a downtown Los Angeles women's center, and canceled 14 of 19 therapy appointments.
Lohan spent less than five hours behind bars due to overcrowding.
Upon her release, Sautner outlined a strict counseling and community service schedule, in lieu of additional jail time.
Lohan has to check in with the judge monthly to make sure she is complying with her probation.
If the actress stays on track, her probation would be eased March 29, Sautner said.
If she doesn't keep up with the requirements, she will serve additional jail time.
