I gave guardianship of my daughter (Am. Indian) to her half-sister, and now I'm (Am. Indian) in the position to get my child back. When we originally went to court it was handled as a ICWA case. The research I've done states that once a Am. Indian parent is deemed fit, the judge has to immediately return custody being the best interest of child (U.S. Code Title 25 -Indian chapter 21- s1916.a). Am I reading & understanding it correct?
