How do I get assistance for my special needs? 

Physical Accommodation:
To ensure compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), the courts have designated ADA coordinators for their facilities and services. If you have questions or need assistance, contact the appropriate ADA Coordinator.

To request an accommodation under the ADA, please submit a Request for Accommodation by Persons with Disabilities (CC-DC 49)/Solicitud de Personas con Discapacidades para Efectuar Adaptaciones (CC-DC 49 BLS) to the court in which the case will be heard. Requests for accommodation should be submitted to the court not less than thirty (30) days before the proceeding for which the accommodation is requested.

For more information on ADA, visit the Office of Fair Practices' website

Spoken Language Interpreter:
