On October 3, 2012, Workman became the temporary guardian of her younger sister, following allegations of Winter's physical and emotional abuse at the hands of their mother. Workman has filed a guardianship petition, seeking permanent guardianship over Winter. In her youth, Workman was removed from her mother's care after similar allegations.
On May 5, 2014, the court ordered permanent guardianship to Workman and removed Winter from her mother's guardianship permanently. Workman and Winter's mother later released a statement stating "The family has moved beyond the conflict."
