Fairfax County General District Court: Interpreter Services


Interpreter Services

Interpreters for speech or hearing impaired persons and non-English speaking individuals will be provided free of charge in the General District Court.  Spanish interpreters are available to assist in the courtrooms on a daily basis.  Korean and Vietnamese interpreters are also available daily for the 9:30 a.m. criminal and traffic dockets.  All other interpreters will be scheduled as needed by advance notice to the Court Services Division or to the individual Clerk’s Office:

  • Court Services – 703-246-7530

  • Civil Division – 703-246-3012

  • Criminal Division – 703-246-3305

  • Traffic Division – 703-246-3764

If any attorney, officer, or party is aware that an interpreter will be needed for a language other than Spanish, they should contact the appropriate court division as early as possible but no later than three working days before the first court date.  Interpreters for speech-impaired or hearing-impaired individuals should be requested at least two weeks in advance of the court date. 

For Civil or Small Claims cases, any attorney or party to a suit who is aware that an interpreter for any language will be needed for trial should contact the Civil Clerk’s Office as soon as possible.  Interpreters for Civil and Small Claims cases are scheduled only as needed. 

With advance notice to the Spanish Language Coordinator (703-246-3585) or Court Services Division (703-246-7530), interpreters can be provided for court appointed attorney-client interviews of incarcerated defendants or clients out on bond.  Contact the Court Services Division for more information concerning this service.  The Court does not provide interpreters to assist in translation of documents.
