Intergovernmental Referrals Involving Indian Tribes

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.

UIFSA compels a State employer to honor a withholding order sent directly from another State or Indian Tribe.

C1. What information does your tribe require to establish a paternity order?
The Stockbridge-Munsee Paternity Law, found at Chapter 12 of the Tribal Code allows for the acknowledgment of paternity voluntarily, paternity establishment by use of DNA testing or by accepting testimony as to the paternity. Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement (VPA) forms can be completed at the SMTCSA. Minimally, we need father, mother child name, date of birth, SSN If the mother and the alleged father can agree to participate in genetic testing to determine paternity, the Child Support Specialist may prepare a Stipulation and Order for Genetic Testing for review and filing by the CS-Attorney. Both parties must sign the Stipulation in front of a notary and then the Stipulation shall be filed with the Tribal Court. Once the Judge signs the Order and the Order is returned to SM-TCSA, the Child Support Specialist shall schedule a date and time to obtain DNA samples. This notice shall be properly mailed out to the parties and an affidavit of mailing prepared by the Child Support Specialist. No DNA testing without a court order.

C2. What information does your tribe require to establish a child support order?
If paternity has been established and there is a father listed on the birth record the Child Support Specialist can proceed directly with establishing an order for child support after receiving an application or referral for services. Request for Child Support Order Establishment: Requests to establish a child support order are received by the child support office in a variety of ways. 1. A parent or anyone with court order placement of a child can submit an application for child support services. 2. If ICWA has legal custody of a child they may make a referral for child support services on behalf of a caretaker or for reimbursement of placement costs. 3. If a custodial party is receiving TANF, Kinship Care or IV-E (foster care), the agency providing the benefit will provide SM-TCSA with a referral. If a party is receiving these types of cash benefits they are required to cooperate with the establishment of a child support order. If they fail to cooperate they will have a reduction or a termination of benefits unless good cause is found. When an intact family exists, their order may be set and suspended pursuant to the Agency Intact Family Guideline. An order establishing a child support obligation can be obtained by: a. Stipulation (agreement) of the parties; or b. Court Order following a hearing.

C3. What information does your tribe require to recognize a foreign order for enforcement?
Identification of Employee or Tribal Member Once a written request has been received by the SM-TCSA, the Child Support Specialist shall verify if that party is still employed by the Stockbridge-Munsee Community or North Star Mohican Casino and/or is still an enrolled Stockbridge-Munsee Tribal Member.

The Suquamish Tribe


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.
