For additional information about COVID-19 ORDER AS TO CIRCUIT COURT PROCEEDINGS Click Here

Access to the Virginia Beach Circuit Court and the Circuit Court Clerk's Office, per a Court Order issued today from the Supreme Court of Virginia, will be limited. Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office Deputies, who provide security at the Courthouse, will be limiting individuals entering the Courthouse.

The Circuit Court Clerk's Office wants to do everything we can to protect the public who need to do business with us, and our staff who work at the Clerk's Office. For those of you who do not have an emergency need to enter the Courthouse, we are asking you to stay home.

The Clerk's Office is open. For those of you who do not want to come into the Courthouse, there will be two lock boxes on the steps of 10B for drop offs, one for civi or criminal filings, and one for deed/land record recordings.

We also have electronic recording available through two vendors, Simplifile (800-460-5657) and CSC (866-652-0111). The lock boxes will be checked several times during the day for paper filings, and we will handle those documents as if they were brought in at the counter.

Note: Boxes will be available from 8:15am till 2:00pm Monday - Friday

We are closely monitoring guidance from the local, state and federal agencies related to COVID-19 with regard to the state mandated duties we have as a Clerk's Office.

As we work through this challenge together, please know that your safety, the safety of my staff, while still trying to conduct business the best we can is at the forefront of my thoughts. Everyone please be calm, stay safe and remember to wash your hands!
