The Code of Virginia gives the Clerk of the Circuit Court the authority to probate wills and to qualify executors, administrators, trustees, guardians and conservators. Jurisdiction of probate is normally in the city or county where the deceased last resided. All probate, trustee, guardian, and conservator matters are done by appointment only. If you are calling to schedule the probate of a will, please have the will with you when you call and the clerk’s office will confirm what needs to be presented to probate the will. Please call Amanda Adams at (804) 556-5353 extension 3 to set up an appointment.
