The Loudoun County Circuit Court hears bond appeals from the lower courts. Once appealed, these matters are placed on the first available scheduling docket in the Circuit Court.
Appeals received before 1:00 pm on Friday will be placed on the first available scheduling docket in the Circuit Court (typically Monday morning scheduling).
Appeals received after 1:00 pm on Friday will not be placed on the following Monday morning scheduling docket, but will be placed on the next available scheduling docket after that Monday.
Attorneys will be notified by the Circuit Court Clerk's Office of their scheduling date. Attorney's must provide the court with the location of the defendant and must advise if a transportation order is needed.
In the Loudoun County Circuit Court, bond motions are either placed on the scheduling docket or on the Criminal Motions Docket (4th Friday of the month).

Bond motions filed without a praecipe will not be placed on the docket.
Scheduling Docket - Monday mornings at 9 a.m.
