Oklahoma Tribal Family Law Lawyer
Understanding Oklahoma’s Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)
The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) is a federal law that aims to protect Indian children from neglect and abuse while providing guidance in adoption cases and other family law matters. Under the ICWA, custody matters are under tribal jurisdiction, birth parents are afforded protection in adoption matters, and unnecessary separation is avoided with proper notification and procedure.
Similarly, Okla. Stat. § 40.1 - § 40.9 expanded on the ICWA, providing definitions and examples of exemptions, proceedings, emergency situations and removals, preferences, payment terms, record keeping, and agreements. Our Stillwater tribal law attorney is well-versed in cases involving the Indian Child Welfare Act and the intricacies as they relate to tribal rights. We will prioritize the needs of Indian children to help ensure they are well protected.
Being well-versed in tribal law and customs means that our family law clients end up with better options in their cases. Our team spends a significant amount of time educating our clients on what services are available to them as tribal members.
