:  Based on our sources and conversations at the courthouse, it's becoming clear ... Ariel's sister, Shanelle, will become her guardian and the mother will essentially lose custodial rights.

Sources tell us Ariel Winter and her mother, Chrystal Workman, have worked out a settlement in the "Modern Family" star's guardianship case -- and attorneys for both sides are hammering out details right now ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the lawyers are in the courthouse where a hearing was scheduled to go down today ... possibly to determine if Ariel's mom or her older sister Shanelle Gray would be granted permanent guardianship.

Chrystal is waiting outside the courtroom, and just said loudly ... "They're stripping everything from me."

Shanelle has been Ariel's guardian since allegations surfaced back in October that Chrystal was emotionally and physically abusing Ariel.

Wow ...    

We are suppose to act in the best interest of children. With the actions Crystal has taken recently, there is enough evidence to show she is not a good mother and should in fact be stripped of everything.

Hang in there Ariel. This crap will not last forever. You will be 21 soon enough and you can politely tell your crazy money grabbing family to KYA.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THAT BEFORE TRYING TO PUBLICLY HUMILIATE SHANELLE WITH THOSE NUDE/RACY PHOTOS YOU WANTED LEAKED TO THE PRESS. MOTHERS WHO DO THAT TO THEIR OWN CHILDREN ARE NO BETTER THAN PEDOPHILES AND DO NOT DESERVE TO HAVE PARENTAL OR CUSTODIAL RIGHTS!

Good - from what I've heard, this woman has no business raising children. I hope she is stripped of all her rights.

I hope for Ariel and Shanelle's sake, if this woman is stripped of all rights that they file restraining orders against her. The smear campaign to get one daughter back from another daughter isn't going to be half as bad when the judgement comes down and Workman is sent packing. Next up, the talk show circuit and more ugly garbage coming from this woman's mouth.

sounds good! this fat degenerate pig vomit of a mother is clearly evil. hopefully, she'll be out of that girl's life for good. it's gives me hope to see that such a cute, and seemingly nice, intelligent girl can come from such an evil pile of horse dung of a mother like this pig above. same thing goes for the poor kids of those, "teen mom" s***s of the earth women (2 of them at least). those poor babies would be better off being raised by wolves, or by a homeless crack-head. at least they'd have a better chance in life than being brought up by that evil fecal pile named, jenelle or the fat pig, (i've forgotten her name - the one who like beating up her boyfriend - the really violent pig) who is in prison right now.

That's exactly what SHOULD happen to spiteful hags who value money and fame over their children's best interest.
