Under ICWA and MIFPA, an Indian tribe must be notified and permitted to participate in any probate, family court, or juvenile proceeding involving a child who is a member of, or is eligible for membership in, that particular tribe.
ICWA and MIFPA affect not only who can participate in a guardianship or custody-related proceeding involving an Indian child, but the nature of the proceedings themselves and the standard of proof that will justify placement of the child with a non-tribal custodian.
If the purpose of MIFPA is to preserve the Indian family, the statute is overbroad where no parent is a tribal member.
