Unofficial Dual Language Forms
The Judicial Conference’s Committee on Court Administration and Case Management has endorsed the posting of certain dual language forms that may be of assistance to persons of limited English proficiency. Each form contains the complete English text of the national judiciary form in addition to a Spanish language translation below each line of English text. These forms are not nationally supported or officially approved, but are provided as examples only as a matter of convenience to assist court interpreters and litigants with limited English proficiency as well as their attorneys. They do not replace the need for an official form in the English language. The availability of these forms does not obligate the judiciary to produce comparable forms in any other languages used by the public or defendants in court proceedings initiated by the United States. The AO takes no responsibility for the accuracy or legality of the material contained in these forms.
