Subpoena Requests

The Clerk's Office prepares witness subpoenas and subpoenas duces tecum (subpoenas for the production of records) for civil cases.



  • Witness subpoenas - there is no clerk's fee for issuance.
  • Subpoena duces tecum - there is a $5.00 clerk's fee which must be remitted along with the request.
  • Any type of subpoena, to be served by the Sheriff - additional $12.00 service fee will be required for each subpoena.
    • NOTE: Any subpoenas that should be served by a Sheriff in another county will be forwarded to that Sheriff by the Clerk's Office. For Sheriff's service fees in Virginia Beach, please send a separate check made payable to "Virginia Beach High Constable."
