Based on the following summary, the petitioner used due diligence to identify and work with the tribes of which there is reason to know the child may be a member or eligible for membership, to verify whether the child is in fact a member (or the biological parent is a member and the child is eligible for membership). The facts establish by clear, cogent and convincing evidence, including the testimony of a qualified expert witness that continued custody of the child by the mother father Indian custodian is likely to result in serious emotional or physical damage to the child. DCYF made active efforts by actively working with the parent, parents, or Indian Custodian to engage them in remedial services and rehabilitative programs to prevent the breakup of the Indian family beyond simply providing referrals to such services, but those efforts have been unsuccessful.
