Limited English Language Persons (LEP)

Those that have a limited English language ability are able to request an interpreter for all administrative matters, hearings, trials, and motions.  Depending on the situation and the assistance asked for, the individual may have an in-person interpreter or one that is video conferenced in.  If they are on a video remote system, all documents and a case summary are sent to them prior to the hearing.  For Spanish language speakers, a one week notice is recommended.  For any other language, a minimum notice of two weeks is preferred.
