Court Closings - Inclement Weather, Holidays

Inclement Weather

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

State law provides that the General District Court Clerk's Office may be closed only 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 General District Court or its Clerk's Office. Inclement weather closings will be announced through various media outlets.

To confirm the operating hours of the General District Court Clerk's Office in the event of inclement weather, please call (804) 748-1231.
