Intergovernmental Referrals Involving Indian Tribes


Congress amended Title IV-D of the Social Security Act in 1996 and 1997 to authorize direct federal funding to Indian Tribes and tribal organizations to operate child support programs (codified at 42 USC 655.) The Administration for Children and Families promulgated final regulations to implement direct federal IV-D funding to Tribes and tribal organizations on March 30, 2004. The regulations, ...emphasize that one of the key underlying principles of these final Tribal IV-D regulations is recognition of and respect for Tribal sovereignty and the unique government-to-government relationship between Indian Tribes and the Federal government. We have determined that the statute does not mandate that requirements imposed on Tribal IV-D programs be the same as those imposed on State IV-D programs as prerequisites for funding. Tribes are not required to adopt the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) as states are required to do. UIFSA compels a State employer to honor a withholding order sent directly from another State or Indian Tribe. All federally funded tribal child support programs have adopted procedures for recognition and enforcement of foreign child support orders, consistent with the Full Faith and Credit for Child Support Orders Act.

Intergovernmental Referrals Involving Indian Tribes


Congress amended Title IV-D of the Social Security Act in 1996 and 1997 to authorize direct federal funding to Indian Tribes and tribal organizations to operate child support programs (codified at 42 USC 655.) The Administration for Children and Families promulgated final regulations to implement direct federal IV-D funding to Tribes and tribal organizations on March 30, 2004. The regulations, ...emphasize that one of the key underlying principles of these final Tribal IV-D regulations is recognition of and respect for Tribal sovereignty and the unique government-to-government relationship between Indian Tribes and the Federal government. We have determined that the statute does not mandate that requirements imposed on Tribal IV-D programs be the same as those imposed on State IV-D programs as prerequisites for funding. Tribes are not required to adopt the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) as states are required to do. UIFSA compels a State employer to honor a withholding order sent directly from another State or Indian Tribe. All federally funded tribal child support programs have adopted procedures for recognition and enforcement of foreign child support orders, consistent with the Full Faith and Credit for Child Support Orders Act.

Intergovernmental Referrals Involving Indian Tribes


Congress amended Title IV-D of the Social Security Act in 1996 and 1997 to authorize direct federal funding to Indian Tribes and tribal organizations to operate child support programs (codified at 42 USC 655.) The Administration for Children and Families promulgated final regulations to implement direct federal IV-D funding to Tribes and tribal organizations on March 30, 2004. The regulations, ...emphasize that one of the key underlying principles of these final Tribal IV-D regulations is recognition of and respect for Tribal sovereignty and the unique government-to-government relationship between Indian Tribes and the Federal government. We have determined that the statute does not mandate that requirements imposed on Tribal IV-D programs be the same as those imposed on State IV-D programs as prerequisites for funding. Tribes are not required to adopt the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) as states are required to do. UIFSA compels a State employer to honor a withholding order sent directly from another State or Indian Tribe. All federally funded tribal child support programs have adopted procedures for recognition and enforcement of foreign child support orders, consistent with the Full Faith and Credit for Child Support Orders Act.

Intergovernmental Referrals Involving Indian Tribes


Congress amended Title IV-D of the Social Security Act in 1996 and 1997 to authorize direct federal funding to Indian Tribes and tribal organizations to operate child support programs (codified at 42 USC 655.) The Administration for Children and Families promulgated final regulations to implement direct federal IV-D funding to Tribes and tribal organizations on March 30, 2004. The regulations, ...emphasize that one of the key underlying principles of these final Tribal IV-D regulations is recognition of and respect for Tribal sovereignty and the unique government-to-government relationship between Indian Tribes and the Federal government. We have determined that the statute does not mandate that requirements imposed on Tribal IV-D programs be the same as those imposed on State IV-D programs as prerequisites for funding. Tribes are not required to adopt the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) as states are required to do. UIFSA compels a State employer to honor a withholding order sent directly from another State or Indian Tribe. All federally funded tribal child support programs have adopted procedures for recognition and enforcement of foreign child support orders, consistent with the Full Faith and Credit for Child Support Orders Act.
