Indian Child Welfare

Receive Statute, Culture, and Solution-Based Testimony and Guidance

The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) was a federal law passed in 1978, in response to a high number of Native American children being removed from their families, cultures, and communities.  The intent of ICWA was to "protect the interests of Indian children and to promote the stability and security of Indian tribes and families," (25 United States Code, Section 1902).

ICWA creates specific requirements in child welfare cases that require specialized expertise and the ability to successfully work with tribes, government, and families.
