It is important that all sides clearly understand what is happening during a court proceeding and are able to participate in court programs and services, regardless of their ability to communicate effectively in spoken English language. If you or someone you know needs a language or sign interpreter for a court appearance, contact (404) 613-9071 for more information.

Requests for Spanish interpreters must be made 24 hours in advance of the scheduled court appearance; requests for languages other than Spanish require 48 hours prior notice. Please complete the Request for Interpreter form (PDF). You will need the following information:

  1. Name of individual requiring services
  2. Magistrate Court request
  3. Case style and case number
  4. Date and location
  5. Name of Judge and attorney(s)
  6. On-site contact information for court personnel
  7. Number of interpreters required if multiple parties need assistance
