The daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain will no longer be in the custody of Courtney Love. KTLA reported that 17-year-old Frances Bean Cobain will now be under the temporary guardianship of her father’s mother (grandmother) and sister (aunt). The court order is in place until February but doesn’t give the girl’s grandmother or aunt any access to her trust that was set up by her father. The report did not give any reasons for the change in guardianship.
Temporary guardianship is the first step in pursuing permanent guardianship of a child when it is believed that the minor needs immediate help. The temporary guardianship order stays in effect for 30 days or until the date of the general hearing. At that time, court proceedings will determine who should be given guardianship of the minor. A court can grant guardianship of a child and/or the child’s estate.
