Court Interpreters Available for All Court Proceedings
As of April 2011, a court interpreter for non-English speakers is now available and provided and paid for by the judiciary in all court proceedings.
This includes all cases in all courts. It includes court hearings and conferences and mandatory court-sponsored programs such as court-annexed mediation and divorce classes. It extends to everyone associated with the case, such as parties, witnesses, and parents of juveniles. The full court interpreter policy is found in Rule 3-306(4) of the Judicial Council Rules of Judicial Administration.
