  • The Indian Child Welfare Act—According to The Office of Indian Affairs’ website, it is “The purpose of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) 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.”

Guardianship means you have the legal right to care for someone. Idaho Falls family law has many implications for guardianship and how/why it’s transferred.

Three of the most common scenarios for guardianship in Idaho are:

  • An elderly person no longer has the capacity to care for himself or herself
  • A special needs person has attained the age of eighteen but cannot assume adult responsibilities
  • A minor child’s parents cannot
  • care for a child

Guardianship requires approval from a court and courts take this responsibility very seriously—it will need to be determined that the person seeking to be a guardian is both willing and capable of caring for the person who needs one.

Idaho Falls family law can make child support burdensome and complicated. We’re here to make things easier. We often find ourselves helping in the following situations:

  • An elderly person no longer has the capacity to care for himself or herself
