Court Closings - Inclement Weather, Holidays

Inclement Weather

The Circuit Court renders an essential service to the public; therefore, it is rare that the Court closes due to inclement weather.

State law stipulates that the Circuit Court Clerk's Office may only be closed upon order of the Court. Therefore, in the event of inclement weather, the Court, not county administration, determines whether the Court and the Clerk's Office will be closed.

Please note that media announcements regarding inclement weather closings/delayed openings for Chesterfield County government offices do not apply to the Circuit Court or its Clerk's Office.

Inclement weather closings/delays for Chesterfield Courts will be announced through various local media outlets.
