WV Courts back open for non-emergency proceedings

Several previous orders issued by the WV Supreme Court of Appeals closing the courts except for emergencies have expired and proceedings including hearings and trials will be happening again in magistrate, family, and circuit courts in our state.

Though all the courts are encouraged to use technology to allow remote attendance for proceedings, each county and court will function a little differently. 

If you have had a court proceeding that was delayed during the pandemic you should expect to get notified about scheduling soon. If you have concerns about your safety appearing in court you can call the judge or magistrate's office and talk to the clerk about how to safely make your appearance.

Here's the most recent order about how the courts will resume non-emergency operations If you are at least 60 years old and a West Virginian with a legal question or problem you can call WV Senior Legal Aid and talk to an attorney for free. 1.800.229.5068.
