Family Court


Welcome to the Family Court.

The Oneida Family Court is a court convened to decide matters and make orders in relation to family law, such as divorce, child support, and custody of children. The court is tasked with:

  • Providing for the administration of law and justice;
  • Exercising the inherent power to apply and enforce Oneida law as it pertains to the family and/or children;
  • Providing a knowledgeable, fair, and impartial forum for the resolution of all family law matters; and
  • Supporting a separation of Tribal governmental powers.
