Americans With Disabilities Act

| More

THE FIRST JUDICIAL DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA complies with THE AMERICANS with DISABILITIES ACT (ADA) which requires that all court services and facilities be as reasonably accessible to persons with disabilities as those without disabilities.

If you have a disability and require reasonable accommodations to file a claim, participate in a court proceeding, or use any service provided by THE FIRST JUDICIAL DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA, please call the appropriate ADA coordinator from the link below.

Requests for reasonable accommodation must be made at least three business days in advance of the court activity or within three business days following notice of the court activity, whichever is later. Because some accommodations require additional time, as much notice as possible is requested. On occasion, the court activity will be postponed until accommodation is achieved.
