What the Law Requires

In any civil case before the court, all parties are entitled to proper, legal notice of the proceedings. Therefore, the Court requires a good physical address (either residential or place of employment) for all parties. The Sheriff’s Office in each locality serves all residents within their respective jurisdiction. For example, the Chesterfield Sheriff’s Office Civil Process Division serves all Chesterfield residents. The Clerk’s Office mails notice to the Sheriff in all other Virginia localities for their residents to be served.
