Interpreting services are provided by the court for defendants and defense witnesses in criminal cases, pursuant to the Court Interpreters Act (Title 28, U.S.C. § 1827). The only types of civil cases where the court may provide interpreting services are cases filed under 28 U.S.C. 2254 and 2255, and specific provisions of the Hague Convention.
If you have any questions regarding the provision of court interpreting services, please contact Melinda Gonzalez-Hibner, Supervisory Interpreter, at email@example.com.
