LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson's family moved quickly Monday to take control of his complicated personal and financial affairs, winning temporary custody of his three children and asking a judge to name the King of Pop's mother as administrator of his estate.In documents filed in Superior Court, Jackson's parents said they believe that their 50-year-old son died without a valid will.They also made it clear that they want to take charge of both his debt-ridden but potentially lucrative financial empire and act as permanent caretakers of his three children.Judge Mitchell Beckloff granted 79-year-old Katherine Jackson temporary guardianship of the children, who range in age from 7 to 12.

He did not rule on her requests to take charge of the children's and Jackson's estates, and set a hearing for July 6 and another for Aug.

3 to consider those issues.

He will also consider whether Katherine Jackson should be named the children's permanent guardian.L.

Londell McMillan, the family's attorney, said in a statement that the Jacksons are pleased with the results of their Monday filings.When Jackson died Thursday, he left behind a 12-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter by his ex-wife Deborah Rowe, and a 7-year-old son born to a surrogate mother.The Jackson family said the children — Michael Joseph Jackson Jr.

(known as Prince Michael), Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael II — are living at the Jackson family compound in Los Angeles.Family patriarch Joe Jackson, 79, said at a news conference that the children were enjoying playing with other kids — something they do not normally do.Meanwhile, authorities continued to investigate Jackson's death.

Officials with the Los Angeles County coroner's office returned to the mansion he was renting and left with two large plastic bags of evidence.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said only that the bags contained medication.Lawyers for Jackson's cardiologist, Dr.

Conrad Murray, said he never prescribed Demerol or OxyContin for Jackson and did all he could to revive him when he found the entertainer near death.Attorney Matt Alford said it took as long as 30 minutes for paramedics to be called after Murray found Jackson with a faint pulse and performed CPR.

He said the delay was partly because Jackson's room in the rented mansion didn't have a phone and Murray didn't know Jackson's address to give to emergency crews.In another development, two weeks before he died, Jackson wrapped up an elaborate production dubbed the "Dome Project" that could be his final video piece.
