General District Courts handle ordinance & traffic violations, misdemeanors, civil cases to $25K, and small claims cases. Juvenile & Domestic Relations District Courts handle matters involving children, parents, and spouses. Both types of courts can appoint Magistrates to handle certain matters. At the second level are Circuit Courts, the trial courts of general jurisdiction. They handle civil cases, divorces, adoptions, probate matters, felonies, and misdemeanor appeals. At the third level is the Court of Appeals, which reviews decisions by the lower courts. At the fourth level is the Supreme Court, which has discretionary review of Court of Appeals cases, and reviews all death penalty cases.  Virginia Court Records
