Unofficial Dual Language Forms
Guide to Judiciary Policy, Vol 22, Ch 1, § 150.15 Unofficial Dual Language Forms states:
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 Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts takes no responsibility for the accuracy
or legality of the material contained in these forms.
*Note* - Only English version forms will be accepted for filing with the Court.
