In many instances, a citizen’s first contact with Virginias Judicial System comes through the office of the Magistrate. A principal function of the magistrate is to provide an independent, unbiased review of complaints of criminal conduct brought to the office by law enforcement or the general public. Magistrate duties include issuing various types of processes such as arrest warrants, summonses, bonds, search warrants, subpoenas, and certain civil warrants. Magistrates also conduct bail hearings in instances in which an individual is arrested on a warrant charging him or her with a criminal offense. Magistrates provide services on an around-the-clock basis, conducting hearings in person or through the use of videoconferencing systems.
The magistrate system for the Commonwealth is divided into eight regions, and each magistrate is authorized to exercise his or her powers throughout the magisterial region for which he or she is appointed. Each region is comprised of between three and five judicial districts. There are magistrate offices located throughout Virginia, including at least one in each of Virginias 32 judicial districts.

Government officials learning Spanish to officiate at Hispanic weddings
Journal Gazette, The (Fort Wayne, IN) - Monday, September 16, 2002
Author: Paul Glader Washington Post
Removing a language barrier couldn’t erase the nuptial jitters for Andres Jimenez Moritz, who married a more relaxed and smiling Noelia Madueno Prado recently in the old Prince William County, Va., Courthouse.
The 21-year-old bridegroom’s fingers fidgeted nervously, and he shifted back and forth in his dark dress shoes as he and his young immigrant sweetheart exchanged vows and simple rings at the instruction of Gladys Zimmerman , a Spanish-speaking civil celebrant.
“Puede besar a la novia,” said Zimmerman, closing the five-minute ceremony with the traditional phrase in Spanish that allows the bride and groom to kiss.
With Hispanic populations rising sharply, counties such as Prince William and Maryland’s Montgomery have hired Spanish-speaking civil celebrants like Zimmerman to perform weddings.
Immigrants in Loudoun, Va., and Maryland’s Prince George’s counties, however, must take a friend along to interpret or bluff through a ceremony with broken English and charades, an embarrassing experience for all parties.
David Mabie, Prince William’s clerk of courts, said he fumbled through ceremonies in that fashion in the late 1980s.
Prince William’s Hispanic population grew from 10,000 in 1990 to 17,600 in 2000, and Mabie knew something had to change. So he hired Zimmerman from another department of the courts in 1995 and made her a deputy clerk and civil celebrant. Zimmerman, a native of Peru, performs as many as five Spanish-language ceremonies a day.
