Courts and Legal


Three Virginia courts serve the residents of Fairfax County: Circuit Court, General District Court, and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.

Virginia’s Emergency Substantial Risk Order (ESRO) law, commonly referred to as a “red flag law,” went into effect, making Virginia the 19th state to enact such legislation.

ESRO provides necessary procedural safeguards to ensure that no firearm is removed without due process while ensuring that tragedies, like the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., are not repeated.
