How to Obtain Copies of Court Orders


How to Obtain Copies of Court Orders

Court orders can be obtained by coming in person to the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court Records Counter on the third floor of the Fairfax County Courthouse. Normal operating hours are Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. No files will be pulled after 3:45pm. You will need proof of identification that you are a party to the case. Accepted identification includes:

  • Valid U.S. driver's license
  • DMV identification card
  • Passport
  • Military ID.
  • Original birth certificate

Attorneys will need to show a Virginia bar card. You do not need to be a party to a case to receive a copy of an adult criminal warrant, protective order or child support order, but you will still be asked to present identification. Children's information will be redacted (i.e., removed) for non-parties.

  • Files will not be pulled for viewing/inspection/copies 24 hours before or after any court hearings. (No exceptions)
  • No more than 5 cases per day will be pulled for viewing/inspection/copies. If there is a request for more than 5 cases than a request can be filled out and left at Records. The files will be ready within 24 hours.
  • No more than 10 pages will be copied at the time of service. If there are more than 10 pages being requested then a request will be left with Records. The copies can take up to 72 hours to be made and option of pick-up or mailing will be made available.
  • Payment is due at the time of service or when request is made.
  • Fee is $1.00 each for the first two pages and $.50 for each page thereafter.
  • No files will be pulled for inspections/copies after 3:45PM
  • Faxed requests will no longer be accepted.
