How the court may be able to help

If you have a hearing impairment, we can arrange for a sign language translator. If you’re deaf, hearing-impaired, deafblind and/or speech-impaired you can call us through NZ Relay(external link)

Other ways the court may be able to help you include:

  • provide documents in other formats (such as Braille or bigger type) if you have a vision problem
  • use an accessible court room if you have a mobility problem
  • give you a seat near the witness or judge or get sound reinforcement if you have a hearing problem.
