How to Request an Accommodation

In accordance with California Rules of Court 1.100, a request for accommodations must be made as far in advance as possible, and in any event, must be made no fewer than five (5) court days before the requested implementation date. The Court may, in its discretion, waive this requirement. The Court may be unable to accommodate an untimely request.

Form MC-410: Request for Accommodations by persons with disabilities and response

Requests may also be presented in another written format, or orally.

When making a request by telephone, please have the following information readily available:

  • Name and address of person requiring the accommodation
  • Name of the court facility and department/courtroom number where the accommodation is needed
  • Case name
  • Case number
  • Type of proceeding (civil, small claims, unlawful detainer, criminal, traffic, juvenile dependency, juvenile deliquency, family law and probate)
  • Date the accommodation is needed
  • Impairment necessitating accommodation
  • Type of accommodation

All requests must be forwarded to the ADA Coordinator. See above for the ADA Coordinator’s contact information.

Americans with Disabilities Act Grievance Procedure

Complaints alleging discrimination on the basis of disability can be filed through the court’s Grievance Procedure, which is established in accordance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).  Do not use this process if you filed a Request for Accommodation (MC-410) and your request was denied, and you want to appeal. See the procedures in California Rules of Court rule 1.100(g).
