Joe Jackson has come one step closer to cashing in on his late son, Michael Jackson's estate.
In court Thursday Judge Mitchell Beckloff set an evidenciary hearing for May 26th for Joe Jackson's request for a family allowance.
But it won't be plain sailing for Joe, Margaret Lodise, the guardian ad litem for Michael Jackson's children told the judge, "I have concerns about the request because Joe Jackson isn't a beneficiary of the estate."
Brian Oxman appeared on behalf of Joe Jackson who wasn't in court in person.
Katherine Jackson's legal ace attorney Adam Streisand told RadarOnline.com, "Katherine supports Joe receiving some type of allowance, we just don't how much is appropriate."
