To Whom It May Concern, I am enrolled with the Oglala Sioux Tribe and I am about to go through a nasty divorce with my husband. I was wondering if this “Indian Child Welfare Act” will help me in any way to keep primary custody of my son. I am a good mother I don’t abuse drugs or alcohol. I have a home of my own, I work full time, have my own vehicle and my son and I attend church on a regular basis. My soon to be ex husband keeps telling me that he is going for full custody of our son. The only reason he wants our son is so that he won’t have to pay child support and so that he can keep his current housing allowance through the air force. He’s hiring an attorney so If you could get me any information that might help me I’d appreciate it.
