Modern Family star Ariel Winter's father has been granted temporary guardianship of his daughter after a custody hearing Wednesday in Los Angeles.

ET has learned that the temporary guardianship by Glenn Workman will continue until the next hearing on the custody matter, set for March 29, 2013.

Ariel, 14, arrived to the courthouse walking hand-in-hand with her sister, Shanelle, who was previously granted temporary guardianship of the actress. Ariel's mom, father and brother Jimmy were all present in court on Wednesday.

Shanelle got temporary custody in October after court documents alleged that Ariel had "been the victim of ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name calling, personal insults about minor and minor's height, attempts to 'sexualize' minor, deprivation of food, etc.) for an extended period of time by the minor's mother [Chrisoula 'Crystal' Workman]..."

Crystal has denied the allegations and previously told ET she loves her daughter and is just trying "to reunite our family."

Last month, Workman filed an objection to Ariel's current guardianship and said he would be willing to care for her. In court papers filed November 20, Workman stated that he is "more than capable of caring for Ariel in every way."  Workman denied allegations in the current petition of guardianship that alleged he has been "estranged and incapable of properly caring for" Ariel.
