Interpretive Services


The Northeastern Judicial Circuit is committed to providing qualified interpreters to limited-English-proficient and deaf or hard of hearing persons in order to eliminate communication barriers that may prevent full participation in court proceedings necessary to ensure due process and equal access to the courts.

The Northeastern Judicial Interpretive Services provides interpreting guidance to those individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) on how to obtain the language support necessary to navigate our legal system as provided by Federal law, so individuals with LEP will not be missing all the necessary and important information regarding court procedures.

The Northeastern Judicial Circuit Interpretive Services provides support for scheduling coordination of interpretive assignments to the judges, attorneys, legal advocates, pro-se litigants, individuals with LEP, and the hearing impaired. This department also assists in ensuring the party(s) have the proper interpreting services during each requested legal event and/or matters.

Interpreter Requests

The Northeastern Judicial Circuit Interpretive Services encompass a wide range of languages, including Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean, French, and many more.

In order to accommodate the growing needs of circuit wide interpretive services, advance notice of ten (10) business days is required to ensure an interpreter will be readily available and properly secured for the particular legal event, procedure and/or court assignment.
