Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Virginia

We posted a pay or quit and our tenant moved out. However, they owe us a lot of back rent. Do we move forward with the eviction even though they have moved to get a judgement for money owed, or is there a different process to sue for the back rent?

Thanks

Same process, you have possession but you may as well get a court order for it and your rent and any damages. Summons for Unlawful Detainer form may be found on Virginia Courts website. Good luck.
