Request for Spoken Foreign Language Court Interpreter
The Judicial Department provides spoken foreign language court interpreters at state expense for all Limited English Proficient (LEP) parties in interest in most court proceedings, child custody mediation, child planning conferences, and out-of-court communications on behalf of public defenders, assigned/appointed counsel, district attorneys and the GAL Program.
A request for an interpreter must be submitted to the language access coordinator (LAC) in the county in which the case will be heard. When you select the county in the box below, this form automatically will be sent to the LAC for that county.
- Enter the requested information in the fields below.
- You will receive a confirmation email to acknowledge your successful submission of the form. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours, please contact the LAC for the county.
- You may contact the LAC at [CountyName].Interpreter@nccourts.org. For example, to contact the Wake County LAC, send an email to Wake.Interpreter@nccourts.org. For New Hanover county, send an email to NewHanover.Interpreter@nccourts.org.
You should submit a new request form for each court date for which an interpreter is needed.
