ABSTRACT
The article looks at the need for free professional interpreters in civil domestic violence cases in the U.S. The author argues that states or counties which do not provide this service are in fact denying victims of domestic violence access to the courts. He also explores the possibility that domestic violence courts would be more able and likely than conventional civil courts working with domestic violence victims to provide qualified interpreters in noncriminal cases.
