There will be no tug-of-war over Casey Kasem's body ... Casey's kids have turned over his remains to his widow, Jean Kasem.

An attorney for daughter Kerri Kasem tells TMZ Jean's attorney reached out to request the body be released to her. We're told Kerri obliged immediately, and notified the hospice where Casey died that his wife would be handling funeral arrangements.

We're told Kerri and Jean never spoke directly ... only through attorneys.

As we previously reported -- Kerri's role as conservator expired when her father died Father's Day morning. Jean is the executor of Casey's will.  

According to a recent filing of Casey's health directive ... he wanted a burial.

We're told as of yesterday the body remained in Washington State.
