Court Interpreters

Courts across Florida provide court interpreters in a variety of court matters. Qualified spoken language court interpreters will be appointed where a fundamental interest is at stake and the inability of individuals to understand or express themselves in English may prevent full and necessary participation in court proceedings.

Such cases include, but are not limited to, circuit and county criminal, juvenile delinquency and dependency, paternity, domestic violence injunction, mental health and incapacity proceedings, and any other matters in which the court determines an interpreter is necessary.

Requests for spoken language court interpreters must be made with your local court at least 7 days in advance of the scheduled proceeding.

What if I am in a Family Law case and no court interpreter is provided?

Individuals involved in cases where a court interpreter is not provided must make arrangements for services themselves.

If you have a question about interpreting services for your case, please contact your local court for more information (SEE LINKS BELOW).
