Interpreters & Accommodations

The Maryland Judiciary provides court interpreters for hearings and proceedings conducted in court, as well as certain court-related services and events, at no cost, for individuals who are parties or witnesses in civil, criminal, and juvenile proceedings.

Maryland Court Interpreter Program

The Maryland Court Interpreter Program created the following brochures to assist limited English proficient (LEP) individuals and their representatives:

Spoken Language

To request a spoken language interpreter for a court appearance, please submit a Request for Spoken Language Interpreter  (Form CC-DC-041) (PDF) to the Clerk’s Office for the Circuit Court of Calvert County. The request for an interpreter for your hearing should be submitted to the court 30 days prior to the court date, if possible.  

Sign Language

If requesting a sign language interpreter, complete the Request for Accommodation for Person with Disability (Form CC-DC-049) (PDF). Please submit the completed form to the Clerk’s Office for the Circuit Court of Calvert County not less than 30 days before the proceeding for which the accommodation is requested.
