Washington Appellate Court Remands ICWA Indian Status Case

Here is the unpublished opinion in In re T.B.

From the opinion:

P.R. appeals Kitsap County orders establishing a dependency for her three children and placing them in the care of others. She argues that there was insufficient evidence to prove that she was incapable of adequately caring for the children. See RCW 13.34.030(6)(c). She also contends that the Department of Social and Health Services and the court failed to comply with the requirements of the Indian Child Welfare Act, 25 U.S.C. § 1912 (ICWA). We find adequate evidence to support the dependency but remand for a proper determination of the children’s Indian status.
