(ABC News) -- Paul Walker's mother, Cheryl Ann Walker, filed a petition earlier this week to be named legal guardian of the "Fast and Furious" star's 15-year-old daughter, Meadow, a Los Angeles Superior Court official told ABC News.

The petition filed in Los Angeles asks that the girl's grandmother be allowed to "act as the guardian of the person and estate of the minor."

Walker left his multimillion-dollar estate to Meadow in his will.

People magazine added that the papers, filed Tuesday, asked that Cheryl Ann Walker get custody instead of Meadow's biological mother, Rebecca Jo Soteros.

 Cheryl Ann Walker is "a loving and responsible person. She works as a registered nurse. She has raised her own four children," the papers said, according to People.

Meadow has been living with her grandmother since August 2012 following a year living with her father. Paul Walker and Soteros never were married and shared custody of Meadow as she got older.

 The clerk of courts said that a hearing for custody has been set for April 30.

Walker died on Nov. 30 in a car crash during a charity event for the actor's organization, Reach Out Worldwide. He was 40 years old.
