Sign Language Interpreting
Sign language interpreting is available to any deaf or hard-of-hearing person doing business with the county and the district courts.
The county department where you are conducting business is responsible for securing and paying for interpreting services. The district court is also responsible for securing and paying for interpreting services.
It is the deaf individual’s responsibility to inform the county department or the court that he or she is deaf and requires a sign language interpreter.
County departments or court representative may contact the Deaf Services Coordinator to arrange for interpreter services: (913) 715-8840 or HSD-Scheduler@jocogov.org.
Deaf Services requires at least 48-hour notice (two business days) when requesting an interpreter. We will try to accommodate last-minute requests, but cannot guarantee that an interpreter will be available.
