How many days do you have to serve a complaint to the Defendant in the state of Virginia?
If you cannot locate the Defendant, how do you file a delay of the trial scheduling conference?
1 Answer from Attorneys
In most cases you have 1 year in Virginia courts (unlike Federal courts where it is only 120 days).
If you have not served the Defendant, the Court will want to know about this as soon as possible, because the Court will NOT want to hold the trial scheduling conference if the defendant has not been served.
There should be a phone number on the notice. If not call the court clerk. They will not want to have the trial conference until the defendant(s) is / are served
