Welcome to the Virgin Islands Department of Justice's website. The Department is administered under the general supervision and direction of the Attorney General of the Virgin Islands, who is appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Legislature of the Virgin Islands. As a Territory of the United States, the Virgin Islands is comprised of four islands, St. Thomas, St. John, Water Island and St. Croix, which are divided into two districts, the St. Thomas/St. John/ Water Island District and the St. Croix District. However, the Attorney General serves as the chief law enforcement officer for both districts. The Department, under the leadership of the Attorney General, is tasked with a two-fold mission:

(1) to prosecute all violations of the Virgin Islands Criminal Code and to represent the Government of the Virgin Islands in all civil actions brought on behalf of or against the government.

(2) to provide efficient and effective financial and access support services to children and custodial parents through the Division of Paternity and Child Support.

Whether issuing opinions, providing advice, reviewing regulations or litigating in court, the Department of Justice is dedicated to helping the government of this Territory serve the people of the Virgin Islands. Toward this end, we are committed to working with the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government.

The V.I. Department of Justice will provide excellent, independent, and ethical legal services for the U.S. Virgin Islands in order to achieve justice and to assert, protect and defend the rights of the people.
