Interpreter Services

The Montgomery County Common Pleas Court, Court Services, Caseflow Services Division provides the Common Pleas Court and other court-related departments with interpreters for non English-speaking individuals and sign language interpreters for the hearing impaired, as mandated by the Ohio Revised Code 2311.14.

Guidelines for determining the need for interpreters

Criteria:
An interpreter is needed when if upon examination by the court, counsel, or court personnel there is a party, witness, or jury member who is unable to speak English, so as to be understood directly by counsel, court and the jury, or if a party is unable to understand, speak or hear English sufficiently to comprehend the proceedings and to assist counsel with handling of the case or in service as a juror. Upon this determination, the requesting department should then contact Caseflow Services.
