The Indian Child Welfare Act, usually referred to as ICWA, is federal law that protects an Indian Tribe’s right to be involved with children who are members of the tribe or eligible for membership. A birth mother who is a member of a tribe, but who does not live on the reservation, may make a voluntary adoption plan for her child. Consents to the adoption of an Indian Child cannot be given until 10 days after the birth of the child. The consent to adopt can be withdrawn by the Indian parent at any time and for any reason, up until a final decree of termination or adoption is entered.
