Notice from the Colorado River Indian Tribes Office of the Attorney General:
At the Special Meeting held on June 8, 2017, Tribal Council enacted amendments to the Domestic Relations Code to include
Article 4: Paternity and Maternity. The Amendments enacted a paternity code and reserved a section for a maternity code should
Tribal Council choose to enact a maternity code at a later date. The paternity code governs paternity actions in the tribal court,
which seek to establish who the legal father of a child is. A finding of paternity can be used for tribal enrollment, child support,
custody, and inheritance rights of the child. Prior to its passage, a public hearing was held on September 21, 2016 where the
Office of the Attorney General accepted written and verbal comments and answered questions on the Code. Comments were
also solicited from the Department of Health and Social Services, Legal Aid, and the Courts. A work session was held with Tribal
Council on February 13, 2017. Prior to this amendment, the Tribal Court applied Arizona paternity law to cases in the court as no
CRIT law existed regarding paternity and maternity cases. If you have any questions regarding these amendments, please contact
LeeAnne Kane at the Office
of the Attorney General at (928) 669-1271. The Paternity and Maternity Code will be in effect thirty (30) days from the date of its passage, on and will be available on the CRIT website.
