Katherine and Kids Need Money -- STAT!

7/23/2009 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Michael Jackson's estate, along with Katherine Jackson's lawyer, went to court this morning, seeking temporary financial allowances -- and Katherine claims she needs the money to live.

The matter was put off until August 3, when lawyers will all appear in court.

UPDATE: 2:29 PM PT:
Lawyers for the estate wrote in a written declaration, "We are informed that Mrs. Jackson was also financially dependent upon Michael Jackson and that other than extremely modest social security benefits, Mrs. Jackson has no independent means of support."

The declaration continues: "Michael Jackson died 4 weeks ago. Therefore, there is an urgent need for the Special Administrators to be authorized to pay family allowance for the benefits of Minor Children in order to ensure that the Minor Children's needs for maintenance and support are met."

The document also says other than social security benefits which the kids have not yet received, they are totally dependent on the estate for their care and support.

Mj didn't have a lot of LIQUID assets....meaning cash or thing he could liquify easily. Now that he's gone, and not spending, plus the all the sales of the month after he died, as well as other assets, MJ's kids and Katherine will be allowed an allowance. The judge always takes into consideration what kind of lifestyle these children were accustomed to prior to the death, and will dole out an allowance accordingly.

I want to hear more about this so called "love child" he had 25 years ago! I mean the man was sitting in the front row of the memorial serivce! Who is this guy? Is it really his son? And if so why does he not ever mention him? He must have known about him, otherwise how the hell did he end up sitting my Kathrine Jackson at the service! Give me the dirt on that! I am out of the loop! Damn!

I'm beginning to think even if the judge ruled in their favor for everything, they'd still end up in court over it.
Geeze they're all addicted to SOMETHING!

If I were the judge I would definately give the kids money, but I'd want to know exactly what they need the money for. Is it going to pay the electric bill or what? They expect them to pay their way since they live there, too?
There's a million people living in that house right now.. They need the money for food? I'm sure those poor little kids are eating them out of house and home...

God forbid Joe and Katherine should use any of the 1/2mil they made off their sons death already to feed his kids.

So they won't give their grandkids a free meal?

They are looking at this from every angle to see how much they can get their greedy hands on. Everyday it's something new.
Keep it up Jackson's because you are giving yourselves away.

If she can't afford to raise the children, she shouldn't have them. Next thing you know, Joe Jackson will have them performing on stage. The kids are a meal ticket to grandma & grandpa.

MY UNTIMELY ADVICE TO KATHERINE AND JOSEPH JACKSON

GO SELL SOME OF YOUR JEWELRY TO TIDE YOU OVER......
until you get your allowance!

Contest Michaels Will....in or form....you're gonna get nothing.
Then after the jewelry and household personal items are sold or pawned....you can go get on food stamps and public housing.

As with all spoiled rich kids, they will end up on drugs and be in rehab before they are 20!! Don't give them ANY money and make them go out and work like the rest of the world...then they won' t be bored and turn to drugs to psas the day away.

It's quite possible that the estate attorneys could, as one commenter indicates, give Katherine and the kids money. However, the harm in that is that Katherine could later come back and say that the "estate" is not adequately caring for the kids in the manner they have become accustomed. The estate attorneys are doing it correctly. Taking this stuff before the court. A lot will be decided on August 3rd and I'm sure a very substantial allowance will be approved for the care of Katherine and the children. Also, every trip to the courthouse deducts money from the estate.
