Michael Jackson's mother will be children's legal guardian

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lawyers for Michael Jackson's mother say the family is pleased that Katherine Jackson will be the guardian of her son's three children, under an agreement with his ex-wife.       Deborah Rowe will have visitation rights under the supervision of a child psychologist.      

A statement from attorneys says no money is changing hands as a result of the agreement.      

Michael Jackson was the sole parent to his three children, who range in age from 7 to 12.      

Rowe is the biological mother of the two oldest children, but has been largely absent from their lives.      

Rowe's attorney calls the agreement a "dignified outcome." Katherine Jackson's lawyers say all the parties were united in a goal of doing what's best for the children.      

Jackson has been caring for her grandchildren since her son's death June 25.
