Court Interpreter

You have a right to an interpreter. Ask the Court for an interpreter as soon as you can. The Court should provide an interpreter and pay for it. You don't have bring your own interpreter.

If there is no interpreter at your hearing, say this to the Judge:  "I need an interpreter in my language. If I cannot have an interpreter today then I need a "continuance" until the Court provides me an interpreter."

If the Court refuses to provide you an interpreter, apply for legal help.
