The Violence Against Women Act requires states, tribes and territories to provide full faith and credit for each other’s protection orders on domestic violence and child welfare. Such orders may relate to criminal cases connected to the Tribe or its members. States and tribes have pursued a variety of paths to ensure full faith and credit enforcement. Some states have enacted statutes explicitly recognizing tribal judge protection orders. In other states, the judicial branch or the executive branch have established procedures for enforcement of tribal judge orders. This webinar will explore those options for tribal judges to ensure full faith and credit and offer best practices for tribal court judges in issuing protective orders.
