A sad but common family dispute between Casey Kasem's children and their stepmom (who has been married to Casey for 33 years) over access to their ailing father Casey Kasem, can occur in any family where one of the spouses with children, remarries.

In a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing, attorneys for Kasem's daughter, Julie, 38, told a judge that she was withdrawing her request for legal control of her father's healthcare as part of a confidential visitation agreement.

Andrew Katzenstein (Julie's attorney) stated that the problem "is over" following the hearing. "We're glad the case was able to settle."

This is an interesting debacle that happens almost every day somewhere in the country. In this case, the parties involved are working towards legislation that will give rights to adult children desiring to spend time with their elderly parents when the parent has remarried and the relationship between the adult children and the new spouse is contentious. The reason this case is interesting and important is because Jean Kasem is not an over night date or an on and off relationship. Jean is Casey Kasem's wife of 33 years. This case may affect standing laws across the country.
