In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), the Delaware Judiciary will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.
The Delaware Judiciary will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in The Delaware Judiciary’s programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.
The ADA does not require the Delaware Judiciary to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
The Delaware Judiciary will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
If you are a person with a disability who needs a reasonable accommodation to attend a trial or hearing, please contact the court in which the trial or hearing is scheduled to occur as soon as possible, preferably in writing, before the trial or hearing. Individual court’s contact information in all three counties can be found on the Hours and Locations section of this website.
Jurors needing a reasonable accommodation should contact Jury Services in the county in which they are serving.
Please go to the Delaware State Courts Feedback forms if you need help accessing web content.
If you need an interpreter, including for a person who is deaf or hard-of-hearing, notify the court in which the hearing or trial is scheduled to occur, preferably in writing, as soon as possible (14 days is preferred) before the trial or hearing.
