Please see the November 23, 2020, Loudoun Circuit Court Transition Plan (PDF) and April 29, 2020, Order Establishing Temporary Hearing Procedures (PDF) before filing your praecipe.


  • The Circuit Court of Loudoun County has a local rule and requires that a praecipe be filed for the appropriate docket. All praecipe must be received one week in advance of the hearing you are requesting. If filing a praecipe, a Motion (DOC) must be filed as well for the court to know what issue you are asking the court to rule upon. Motions that are filed without a praecipe will not be set for a hearing and will not be forwarded to chambers for review.
