Paul Walker’s mother has requested a dismissal of her petition for guardianship of the late actor’s 15-year-old daughter, Meadow Rain.

Cheryl Ann Walker, 60, had sought to be named guardian over her son’s estate and his daughter but has abandoned that bid, according to dismissal papers obtained by PEOPLE.

Her attorney, Bela Lugosi, previously told reporters that the family, including Meadow’s biological mother, Rebecca Soteros, wanted to resolve the matter out of court.

A hearing had been scheduled for April 30, but a judge had already dismissed Cheryl Ann’s petition for temporary guardianship over Meadow following her son’s tragic death in a car crash last November.
