This information collection allows the Clerk of the Court of Indian Offenses to collect personal information necessary for a Court of Indian Offenses to issue a marriage license or dissolve a marriage. Courts of Indian Offenses have been established on certain Indian reservations under the authority vested in the Secretary of the Interior by 5 U.S.C. 301 and 25 U.S.C. 2, 9, and 13, which authorize appropriations for ‘‘Indian judges.’’ The courts provide for the administration of justice for Indian tribes in those areas where the tribes retain jurisdiction over Indians, exclusive of State jurisdiction, but where tribal courts have not been established to exercise that jurisdiction and the tribe has, by resolution or constitutional amendment, chosen to use the Court of Indian Offenses. Accordingly, Courts of Indian Offenses exercise jurisdiction under 25 CFR part 11.

In order to obtain a marriage license in a Court of Indian Offenses, applicants must provide the six items of information listed in 25 CFR 11.600(c), including identifying information such as Social Security number, information on previous marriage, relationship to the other applicant, and a certificate of the results of any medical examination required by applicable tribal ordinances or the laws of the State in which the Indian country under the jurisdiction of the Court of Indian Offenses is located.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I.

Other amendments to the system will include updating data in the following fields: System location, categories of individuals covered by the system; categories of records in the system; authority for maintenance of the system; routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories of users and the purposes of such uses; policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, and disposing of records in the system.

In the Privacy Act, an individual is defined to encompass U.S. PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56787 citizens or lawful permanent residents. As a matter of policy, DOI extends administrative Privacy Act protections to all individuals. Individuals may request access to their own records that are maintained in a system of records in the possession or under the control of DOI by complying with DOI Privacy Act regulations, 43 CFR part 2. The Privacy Act requires each agency to publish in the Federal Register a description denoting the type and character of each system of records that the agency maintains, the routine uses that are contained in each system in order to make agency record keeping practices transparent, to notify individuals regarding the uses of their records, and to assist individuals to more easily find such records within the agency. Below is the description of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Financial Assistance and Social Services—Case Management System, Interior/BIA–8, system of records. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), DOI has provided a report of this system of records to the Office of Management and Budget and to Congress. III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Bureau of Indian Affairs is seeking renewal of the approval for 
the information collection conducted under 25 CFR 11.600(c) and 
11.606(c). This information collection allows the Clerk of the Court of 
Indian Offenses to collect personal information necessary for a Court 
of Indian Offenses to issue a marriage license or dissolve a marriage. 
Courts of Indian Offenses have been established on certain Indian 
reservations under the authority vested in the Secretary of the 
Interior by 5 U.S.C. 301 and 25 U.S.C. 2, 9, and 13, which authorize 
appropriations for ``Indian judges.'' The courts provide for the 
administration of justice for Indian tribes in those areas where the 
tribes retain jurisdiction over Indians, exclusive of State 
jurisdiction, but where tribal courts have not been established to 
exercise that jurisdiction and the tribe has, by resolution or 
constitutional amendment, chosen to use the Court of Indian Offenses. 
Accordingly, Courts of Indian Offenses exercise jurisdiction under 25 
CFR part 11. Domestic relations are governed by 25 CFR 11.600, which 
authorizes the Court of Indian Offenses to conduct and dissolve 
marriages. In order to obtain a marriage license in a Court of Indian 
Offenses, applicants must provide the six items of information listed 
in 25 CFR 11.600(c), including identifying information such as Social 
Security number, information on previous marriage, relationship to the 
other applicant, and a certificate of the results of any medical 
examination required by applicable tribal ordinances or the laws of the 
State in which the Indian country under the jurisdiction of the Court 
of Indian Offenses is located. To dissolve a marriage, applicants must 
provide the six items of information listed in 25 CFR 11.606(c), 
including information on occupation and residency (to establish 
jurisdiction), information on whether the parties have lived apart for 
at least 180 days or if there is serious marital discord warranting 
dissolution, and information on the children of the marriage and 
whether the wife is pregnant (for the court to determine the 
appropriate level of support that may be required from the non-
custodial parent). (25 CFR 11.601) Two forms are used as part of this 
information collection, the Marriage License Application and the 
Dissolution of Marriage Application.
