I am in the process off renouncing US citizenship and riding solely on my native citizenship. I as a Cherokee citizen should not have to carry US citizenship to have access to my ancestry and my ancestors land. I will ask for a chancellor to come into Indian territory “Oklahoma “ and conduct my... Read more »
In a nut shell, the Native American tribes are considered domestic nations within the US not foreign nations (hence no US embassy). As a result you cannot denounce your US citizenship and expect to be able to remain in the US. This would restrict your business as well, unless you became a citizen...Read more »
Most pro bono attorneys are referred cases that Legal Aid does not have time to handle.

I would contact Legal Aid if you can't get assistance from the Housing Authority that runs your section 8 program. I would also keep trying with the Housing Authority. In OKC, they have to approve the home before it qualifies for section 8 and it sounds like the apartments should not be...Read more »

Parental rights in Oklahoma are only terminated in connection with an adoption or for abuse/neglect in a deprived child action. If there is a guardianship where someone else has control of your kids that does not terminate your rights, but it can give that person the right to have possession of...Read more »
Subject Matter Jurisdiction issues are being argued based on McGirt and Murphy cases in Oklahoma. You need to be on a role and have a CBID card that shows you have a blood quantum.

The best thing you can do is hire a criminal defense attorney and follow your attorney's advice. There are a variety of ways to defend the charges you describe, but each case is different. The defense strategy recommended by your attorney will be largely dependent upon the facts and evidence...Read more »
The Mcgirt case already caused the State to recall a felony warrant they had on me. Since they lacked jurisdiction on the other felonies I had that I discharged over 15yrs ago does that mean I can hire a lawyer to file the paperwork to get those felonies taken off my record and essentially not be a... Read more »
Yes, that might be possible; however, it is only certain felony crimes that the federal government has exclusive jurisdiction (thus depriving the State of Oklahoma of jurisdiction). For all other felonies committed on Indian Country committed by or against Native Americans, the State of Oklahoma...Read more »

The jail is inhumane, uninhabitable, and the inmates are mistreated. No running water, no working toilets in any of the cells, they are allowed 2 phone calls and that's it, they will let you sit and rot before allowing you another phone call, women having their menstrual cycles are denied...

We have asked that a motion be filed for permanent guardianship but we get told "no we dont want to do that we are going for guardianship". Isnt a law that after 6 months... Read more »
There are several different reasons why an "emergency" guardianship may be continued, and they are all very fact-specific and case-specific. It is not uncommon for different Judges in different counties to handle how they continue "emergencies."
I'm needing to prove that my dad is my dad. He wasnt on my original birth certificate but later did a paternity test for child support. We need a court ordered DNA test (which is my 2nd option) so I can apply for a cdib card if I cant locate this info. It seems to have been lost over the years... Read more »
Has an error to claiming any of that my grandmother was taken from her family and 1930s and never saw her family again. We just in the last five years found out about this land . I have been trying to find somebody to talk to to maybe point me in the right direction . I would love to tell you more
Possibly, It’s really answer this question requires a lot more information from you I suggest: a attorney that handles probate. If your grandmother theater was entitled to inherit then your parent ( grandmother’s child ) could also inherit
