Oklahoma Model Acts

Oklahoma Model Acts have been adopted by the state to maintain some congruity with other states across the US. They are a great resource for family law issues which often occur across or between state lines. The Model Acts, as adopted by Oklahoma, can be found on OSCN or by clicking the links below.

Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)

ICWA is a federal law passed in 1978 that seeks to keep Indian children with Indian families. The law creates federal requirements that apply to state child custody proceedings. These federal requirements occur when the proceeding involves an Indian child who is a member (or eligible member) in a federally recognized Indian tribe. 

Uniform Law Commission

The ULC or the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws provides states with drafted legislation intended to bring "clarity and stability to critical areas of state statutory law".
