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.
