There are three ways.Court File
To get a copy of the court file for the matter, one can contact the "records" department of the 17th Judicial Circuit of Virginia by calling(NNN) NNN-NNNNand asking for the "records" department. Expect to be transferred a few times and/or given another number to call.
Once one gets to the records department, copies of a court file for particular case may be ordered for a nominal fee. There may be a form that needs to be sent in as well. Some clerks need an individual to come in. However, many will do this over the telephone. This is public information, and should be available to anyone at request and a small fee.Police Record
Under the open records act, one can request records from a state agency including authorities. This is done via a certified letter. A wizard-letter creator for VA may be found here
(simply send in the blanks). Also, see here
. Do expect to seem some blacked out parts, however.Official Record
Finally, an official criminal record
of the individual may be requested from the FBI. This is called a Summary Check. See here
Between these three actions, one should get all the record on the matter that exists. I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
