Indiana Courts are committed to providing all people with equal access to the courts. To this end, it strives to make reasonable accommodations for court users with disabilities consistent with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Indiana Code 34-45-1-3 which provides, "Every person who cannot speak or understand the English language or who because of hearing, speaking or other impairment has difficult in communicating with other persons, and who is a party to or a witness in a civil proceeding is entitled to an interpreter to assist the person throughout the proceeding."

If you have a disability and anticipate needing an accommodation, please contact the bailiff of the the court in which the proceeding is taking place. It is recommended that you make your request at least 10 days prior to the date you need your accommodation, if possible. All requests for accommodation will be given due consideration and if necessary may require an interactive process between the requester and the court to determine the best course of action.

If you believe your request for accommodation to your local court has been denied and you have been excluded from participating in any court program because of this denial, you may contact Angela Joseph at 317-234-3935, 30 S. Meridian Street, Suite 500, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
