  • It is rare that a family law case makes it before the U.S. Supreme Court, but a recent decision is the exception. In Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl, (133 S. Ct. 2552 [2013]) the high court took on an adoption case from South Carolina. The case involved the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 (ICWA). While family lawyers in some states may never see an adoption involving the ICWA, those in New York deal with it with some regularity. In Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl, the birth mother (a non-Indian) and the child's biological father, a member of the Cherokee Nation, ended their relationship when the birth mother was pregnant. After the child was born, the birth mother put the child up for adoption through an agency and a non-Indian South Carolina couple was selected as the adoptive parents.
