Tribal Family and Divorce Law

Midwest Tribal Divorce and Family Lawyer in Kansas & Oklahoma

Tribal Law exists in Kansas and Oklahoma. For example, many tribes have their own courts and regulations, which can be intricate and complicated. If you are a tribal member, you may be allowed to proceed with your divorce or family law matter in a tribal court. Matters that might be addressed in tribal court could inclue:

  • Divorce;
  • Child support;
  • Child custody;
  • Paternity;
  • Adoption;
  • Guardianships; and
  • other Family Faw Matters.

Additionally, if your family law matter is an adoption and guardianship, speaking with a lawyer about the Indian Child Welfare Act, which was enacted in 1978, can also be vital. The purpose of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) was to protect the best interest of Indian Children and to promote the stability and security of Indian tribes and families by the establishment of minimum federal standards for the removal of Indian children and placement of such children in homes which will reflect the unique values of Indian culture.

No matter the type of case you face, it is vital that you know your rights. It is also important to know the pros and cons of each court system that may be options for you. Depending on your location and tribe, our lawyers may be able to assist. For example, one of our lawyers in Kansas does have a Tribal Certificate.
