Request an Accommodation
If you have a disability and believe you may need an accommodation to fully and equally participate in a court proceeding or activity, you may request an accommodation. Accommodation requests are granted to any qualified person with a disability for whom an accommodation is reasonable and necessary under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, or under Washington State Court General Rule (GR) 33.
Please use our online portal to securely enter your request and upload your documents online:
This is the preferred method for submitting requests. If you prefer you have the option of using a Request for Reasonable Accommodation Form. Access the documents below:
- Request for Reasonable Accommodation Form and instructions.
- To seal any medical confidential documents, use the Sealed Medical and Health Information Cover Sheet also available as a PDF.
You may be required to provide additional information for the court to properly evaluate your reasonable accommodation request. If medical or other health information is requested, it will be sealed. The submitter may also ask the court to seal the documents. Generally, five-day advance notice is required to review reasonable accommodation requests. However, a response to an immediate need for accommodation will be provided to the fullest extent possible.

Public Access Notice
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), King County must provide information to the public about its obligation to ensure the accessibility of its facilities, programs, services, and activities to members of the public with disabilities. King County also must let the public know whom to contact if they have questions about the ADA, would like to request reasonable accommodations, or if they are aware of barriers to accessibility.
