In accordance with RCW 2.43 and RCW 2.42 the court will appoint an interpreter to assist Limited English Persons (LEP) and hearing impaired individuals in all court legal proceedings.

It is a priority for the court to hire interpreters who are certified and/or registered with the Washington State Administrative Office of the Courts.  In circumstances in which a certified or registered interpreter is not available or the requested language is not a certified or registered language, a qualified interpreter will be used.  Interpreters are paid in accordance with the Snohomish County Courts payment policy.
