Im registered with my tribe. I went through a divorce a year ago and now there have been some serious neglect issues with my ex. I can not afford a lawyer. Can ICWA help me with representaton?

I would need more information to be able to respond more thoroughly. Are you involved with child protection services? If so, there is an obligation to notify the tribe in which you are registered. If the issue is that someone else is neglecting your children, I suspect you are on your own and will need to have an attorney. However, if your tribe has a legal services office, you certainly can consult with that office. Good luck to you.
