As Indian tribes implement enhanced sentencing authority through tribal courts, it is important to provide information relevant to the requirements of the Tribal Law & Order Act of 2010 in so far as judicial qualifications are concerned.
Beginning March 7, 2015, all federally recognized tribes will be able, if they so choose, to exercise the special domestic violence criminal jurisdiction over non-Indians, as authorized by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. However, this expanded jurisdiction, similar to the enhanced sentencing authorized by the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010, includes numerous due process protection requirements that can be costly for a tribe to implement.

The reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) expanded the jurisdiction of tribal courts over crimes of domestic violence committed on tribal land. This authority empowers tribal justice systems to protect victims of domestic violence and provide greater access to victim services in Indian County. Collaboration among state, local and tribal victim services is essential to meet the needs of Native women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
