I currently have a capias for failure to appear in Lynchburg, Virginia. A year ago in Campbell County, Virginia I was charged with a failure to appear. I was issued a summons. Considering the factors,what are the chances I will be granted bond by the magistrate?

Under Virginia law, there is no requirement for the landlord to send the tenant a copy of the final order of judgment and possession, however, you may if you want to.

If the behavior does not stop, after you have put in writing to her to stop, call the Federal Court Clerk's office in Richmond about the next...Read more »
