Carol Burnett Granted Temporary Guardianship of 14-Year-Old Grandson

Carol Burnett has been appointed the temporary guardian of her grandson Dylan.

The 87-year-old actress and her husband Brian Miller have been granted guardianship of their 14-year-old grandson through January 8, 2021, according to court document obtained by People.

“The Court finds that sufficient evidence has been provided to grant the matter on calendar this date based upon the reading of the moving papers and consideration of all presented evidence,” the documents read. “The Petition – Appoint a Temporary Guardian (Subsequent) filed on 8/18/2020 by Petitioner(s) Carol Burnett, Brian Miller is granted. Carol Burnett & Brian Miller is/are appointed as Temporary Guardian(s) of the Person of Dylan Hamilton-West until 01/08/2021 and Temporary Letters shall be valid until that date.”

The decision comes after Carol asked the courts to be granted temporary custody of Dylan amid her daughter Erin Hamilton‘s substance abuse issues.

“Throughout her adult life, and since Dylan’s birth, Erin has suffered from severe substance abuse and addiction issues,” Carol said in filing a few weeks ago. “In the past 19 years, Erin has been in and out of rehabilitation centers and has been institutionalized a total of eight times for a minimum of 30 days each time.”

Dylan‘s father, Erin‘s ex-husband Tony West, is also unable to care for their son as he recently checked into a rehab center, the court documents revealed.
