Hello, I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Julie L. Belshe. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I studied psychology in College up in Northern California. Decided to become a hairdresser, what better profession to listen to people’s lives and make them feel Beautiful at the same time. I come from a family of five.
Let’s get started! “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step” by Lao-Tzu. I choose not be a victim but a survivor and to reach out and assist people among their journey in the Guardianship Arena. Finding my purpose at 48 years old was the biggest gift that god or my higher power has ever given to me, not saying that hasn’t come with plenty of sorrow as well!
My Parent’s were legally kidnapped from their home on the golf course in August of 2013. I lived 10 miles from them and have always been close as life has them. I also am blessed to have a husband of 30 years and 3 Young men that make my heart sing, most of the time. At the beginning of my story it was Labor Day Weekend of 2013 and we had plans to go and visit my Parent’s but nobody was picking up their phone. I was shocked to the core of my being because my Mother was in a wheel chair and normally was home. I decided it was time to take a drive and make sure that My Parent’s were ok? Their home was locked up tighter than a drum. I noticed something was wrong, little suspect items, such as the windows in the middle of the afternoon closed, blinds closed the wrong way. I walked around their home and got a gut wrenching feeling that my Parent’s were kidnapped. I phoned hospitals, facilities, and other people that my Parent’s knew. Nobody knew where they were on this Labor Day Weekend? I continued to drive out to their home for the next 3 days and with no sign of any life and the newspapers piling up. Finally on Tuesday after the holiday a sign was placed on their door saying, “In case of Emergency contact Private Guardian and her phone number. That was the welcoming of my life 4 years ago into the Family Court and Guardianship Arena.
I can now say, after 26 months of visiting them their health was declining and it was my only hope to learn the law and represent my Parent’s Pro Per Se and fight with all of my might to get them out of this Private Guardianship. Good News came down finally at our court hearing and it was decided to restore their rights and they could go home. We now have had them with us for a year and a half. They have become healthier and happier in every sense of the word. We still are in court now and do have representation. I have now dedicated my life to supporting people that are experiencing the different stages of having one or more of their loved ones taken abruptly from their Families life. I proudly have found my second Family at Kasem Cares Foundation. I admire and love all of our team. I especially admire the dedication that Kerri Kasem has taken to start Kasem Cares Foundation. We’re here for you with love and support to offer our empathy and to the best of our ability share our knowledge to help you navigate through this nightmare.
I strongly urge you to share your story with us. Since this tragedy has occurred something in me always keeps me on my toes. Acknowledging that everything in life is temporary the cornerstone of my identity. I look forward to hearing from you and send my love and FAITH to all of us who are brought together by this atrocity of events. Keep the HOPE. With LOVE and HOPE, Julie…xo
Kerri Kasem is a multimedia personality, humanitarian and unrelenting freedom fighter. She is the preeminent advocate against elder abuse in the United States through her work , as founder of the Kasem Cares Foundation — a group that fight against unscrupulous guardians and family members that attempt to exploit ailing seniors and separate them from their loved ones. Due to her efforts, the groundbreaking Kasem Cares “Visitation Bill,” or a variation, has been passed in 21 states and counting, giving children of ailing parents the legal right to visit their parents for the first time in U.S. history.
Kathleen holds the title of Chairman of the Executive Board at Kasem Care. She is the mother of three grown children and grandmother of Wyatt, Wynnie and Dylan. She worked for the United States Postal service as a mail carrier and union representative for eight years negotiating with management for the rights of her co- workers.
In 1990 Kathy got involved with the self help movement attending many talks and conferences on sexual abuse, domestic violence and chemical dependency with speakers such as Depok Chopra, and John Bradshaw. As a member of the Red Cross she helped hurricane Katrina victims by listening to their stories and obtaining clothes, medical attention and funds for lodgings.
During the Christmas of 2012 Kathy's father was taken by a caregiver “friend” who left no information on where they were going or when they'd be back. That was the start of her father’s 14 month isolation, abuse and eventual death at the hands of others. Not only did they isolate Kathy’s father from all family and friends, they stole his entire estate and changed his will leaving nothing to his 4 children or grandchildren. This led to her involvement in Kasem Cares and her position on the executive board of Kasem Cares.
For the last 2 years Kathy has lobbied the “Visitation Bill” speaking to dozens of Senators, Assembly Members, Delegates and State Representatives all over the country. She was an instrumental part of the successful passage of the bill in 8 states which helped earn Kasem Cares several awards including Congressional and State Assembly recognition.
Kathy personally helps victims who write in or call in to the Kasem Cares help line. She continues to push the “Kasem Cares Visitation Bill” forward in 2017 by lobbying 13 new states who have the bill currently going through their legislature.

Rick, and his wife Terri, were first exposed to fraudulent guardianships and probate exploitation in June 2013. His wife’s father, Del, had retired in Las Vegas and due to the deception of family friend Helen Natko, his Alzheimer’s type dementia allowed Helen to exploit him. When her deception, exploitation, and theft was discovered Terri came to her father’s aid but Natko isolated Del in her home. He was never allowed to see or speak to his family alone after the discovery and never allowed to leave her home with family until his death in July 2015.
Law enforcement refused to engage even though Terri presented three forged checks totaling $220,000 and evidence of Natko’s abuse and isolation. The police instructed Terri to file for guardianship of her father as they viewed the situation as a “civil” matter.
Commission Jon Norheim ignored established law, estate documents, and the evidence of theft, isolation, forgery, neglect, and exploitation by Natko against Del. Natko ultimately prevailed in gaining guardianship over Del in July 2014. Rick ultimately got law enforcement engaged and in October 2014 Natko was criminally indicted for felony theft and exploitation of Del.
The family lost over $1 million in the ordeal. Natko was criminally convicted for exploiting Del in April 2017 and sentenced to five years’ probation. Family Court continues to deny her criminal acts against Del.
Motivated by the experience, Rick built a coalition of over 50 families who lost over $40 million from 2010-2015 due to fraudulent adult guardianships in Nevada. He gained the support of local media, elected officials, and the Nevada attorney general to investigate widespread corruption endorsed by Commissioner Jon Norheim in adult guardianship proceedings. He participated in the Nevada Supreme Court’s Guardianship Reform Commission meetings and helped develop new statutes to improve adult guardianship adjudication. The efforts of the coalition has yielded 18 arrests and 17 convictions over the last 4 years. Infamous professional guardian April Parks, attorney Noel Simpson and coworkers Mark Simmons and Gary Taylor were convicted in November 2018.
Rick left his job as an executive of a global textile company in early 2015 to devote himself fulltime volunteering for guardianship reforms and to assist other families. Rick has investigated over 500 suspected fraudulent guardianship cases nationally and counseled over 1,200 families. He coined the phrase “isolate the victim, defame legitimate family, and liquidate the estate” to describe the hallmarks of fraudulent guardianships and probate fraud. Rick’s efforts were the genesis of the documentary “The Guardians” by Billie Mintz which describes the systemic exploitation of vulnerable persons of wealth in Las Vegas via fraudulent guardianships.
He regularly speaks on the issues and has spoken at the National Forum on Financial Exploitation by Conservators sponsored by the National Center for State Courts and the Department of Justice in March 2017 and the KasemCares/California District Attorneys Conference in December 2017. Rick and Terri actively lobby for improved protections for vulnerable adults from the predatory legal community nationally.
Rick, his wife Terri, and Athena Roe, JD of Colorado Springs founded the Center for Estate Administration Reform in early 2018 to advocate for reforms nationwide.
