Maternal grandmother of minor sought custody and guardianship after minor's mother died. After petition was filed, court awarded custody of minor to minor's father, and father moved to dismiss grandmother's amended petition on grounds of lack of standing. Grandmother is not required to re-establish standing to modify a custody order where the court had previously found she had standing, ordered temporary custody to her, and granted substantial visitation when permanent custody was awarded to child's father.(KNECHT and HARRIS, concurring.)
