Circuit Court Clerk’s Office

The Code of Virginia lists more than 800 responsibilities of the Clerk, Heidi S. Barshinger, many of which are complex and challenging. The Clerk serves as the recorder of deeds and probate judge, issues marriage licenses and fictitious names, judgments, and is the official court administrator for all civil and criminal court cases. In this latter capacity, the Clerk creates and maintains all court files and records, prepares court orders and jury lists, contacts jurors and issues summons and court processes.


The Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court has declared a Judicial Emergency until Monday, April 6, 2020. This significantly modifies what cases will be tried.

All civil juries, and most civil matters are continued. Civil matters that will be heard include, but are not limited to, emergency matters, quarantine or isolation matters, arraignments, bail reviews, protective order cases, emergency child custody protection cases, and civil commitment hearings.

As for any criminal or traffic matters please consult with your attorney or the website for the particular court in which your matter is pending.

Courtroom attendance is limited to attorneys, parties, one parent/guardian for a juvenile, necessary witnesses and members of the press.

If you have legitimate court business and are ill, caring for someone who is ill, or is otherwise in a high-risk category, as defined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) call (804)501-4750 or email circuitjudges@henrico.us.
