Limited English Proficiency (LEP)
If English is not your primary language and you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, please let us know.  The CAC wants you to have meaningful access to our services, so we could provide you with an interpreter or document translation to make sure you receive information about your case.  If we know you need special accommodations, we can make arrangements to assist you in the language in which you feel most comfortable.  Our website also has Google Translation embedded into it so it can be read in any language.
