There are complications, however. Paul's father, who is named executor on the will, has petitioned to have the court appoint the late actor's mother Cheryl as Meadow's legal guardian. But the teen currently lives with her mum Rebecca Soteros in Hawaii — she began living with Paul full-time shortly before his death.
It's no surprise that the star left his estate to his only child.
"He told me recently he was the happiest he'd ever been," Paul's close friend Brandon Birtell told People shortly after his death. "It was directly because of his growing relationship with his daughter and the clarity that brought to his life."
Just last year, Paul spoke of how close he had become to Meadow since she had moved from Hawaii to Santa Barbara to live with him.
"She's the best partner I've ever had. I've never had anything like this in my life." he said. "I feel so transient; I've been on my own since I was 16. There's a part of me who feels like I'm making up for lost time."
