Guardianship case for Paul Walker’s daughter ends
May 29, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Paul Walker’s daughter will live with a nanny and her mother, an attorney told a court commissioner who dismissed guardianship proceedings over the teenager on Wednesday.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner David J. Cowan dismissed a guardianship case over Meadow Rain Walker after hearing from Amy Nieman, an attorney he appointed to represent the 15-year-old. Nieman said there was no need for court oversight because there was an adequate plan for the teenager’s care, including help from a close friend of the late actor who has been appointed by another court to make sure Meadow Walker receives proper care.

Meadow Walker’s mother, Rebecca Soteros, has been spending time with her daughter while receiving treatment for alcoholism and is currently sober, Nieman said.

There are “a lot of layers of support for Meadow,” she said.

The estate of the “Fast & Furious” franchise star has purchased a home where Meadow Walker and her mother can live, Nieman said. A nanny who has cared for the teenager for roughly two years is currently living with Meadow Walker, the attorney said.

Paul Walker’s mother, Cheryl, petitioned for a guardianship over her granddaughter, but she later asked to dismiss it, citing Meadow Walker’s wishes. Cheryl Walker’s attorney Steven Bledsoe said Wednesday that his client accepted the arrangement “in the absence of a better plan.”

Attorneys for Soteros and Cheryl Walker declined comment after Wednesday’s proceedings.
