Continuance Policy

For felony drug cases, if a lab report is not back before the second preliminary hearing date, the parties are encouraged to file any agreed continuance requests, at least a week prior to the court date, to have the cases continued for a period no longer than 30 – 60 additional days. In court continuances are disfavored.


Unlawful Detainer Cases

There are several reminders for Fairfax General District Unlawful Detainer court on Fridays:

  1. The UD Case Disposition form should be used.  The following issues have been frequently found with these forms:
    1. The address in the upper right-hand corner should be the detained property address – not the address where the defendant was served, if they differ.
    2. All defendants against whom the case was filed should be listed on the UD Case Disposition form.  If one or more defendants have been dismissed or non-suited at some point in the process, those names should be listed on the following line as appropriate:

NON-SUIT DISMISSED   _______                                    _
