A trial over the guardianship of Ariel Winter was averted Wednesday, when the family agreed that they would seek counseling before deciding who would raise the 14-year-old Modern Family star. The actress has accused her mother, Chrisoula Workman, of abuse, and was suing to live with her adult sister, Shanelle Gray. She'll remain living with her sister until long-term arrangements are decided. “The parties acknowledge that there is no assurance that Ariel will return to the home of either or both parents,” the agreement states. It also stipulates that Winter's mother will have no participation in her daughter's professional acting career.
