Recommendation:
158
Status:
In progress

Who is leading the change

  • Court Services Victoria

The Magistrates’ Court of Victoria allocate specific funding for family violence interpreters and develop court guidelines for booking interpreters in family violence matters. Among other things, the guidelines should take account of the following:

  • an early process for checking whether parties require an interpreter
  • a practice of booking two interpreters if both parties require an interpreter
  • a presumption that wherever possible a female interpreter will be booked for a female party
