Stafford County Juvenile & Domestic Relations

Stafford County Juvenile & Domestic Relations

If your child has been charged or you are an adult who has been charged in Stafford County with a crime against a family member, your case will most likely start in the Stafford County Juvenile & Domestic Relations District Court.  The courthouse is located at the following address:

1300 Courthouse Road

Stafford, Virginia 22555

Most dockets are handled by the Honorable Julian W. Johnson, though on some days cases may be heard by the Honorable Andrea M. Stewart.  Substitute judges may hear cases as schedules dictate.

Parking is ample.  I advise most clients to leave their phone in the car.  Phones are not allowed in the courthouse, and while there are several lockboxes you can use there is not a guarantee that one will be available.  The Sheriff’s staff will not watch your phone for you.  Your possessions will be x-rayed and you will have to pass through a metal detector (sometimes after having removed belts and shoes) before you will be granted access to the courtrooms.  Once you are through security, you can check at the information desk directly in front of you to find out where your case will be heard, though virtually all criminal matters are heard in the courtroom to your left as you face the information desk. There is a courtroom in the basement, but it is typically used for civil matters.  You must check in with the Clerk, whose office is to your left as you face the information desk.  They can confirm for you where to wait for your case to be heard.  No shorts or hats are allowed in the courtrooms.
