REQUIRED BEFORE SERVING
You are required to complete and return the JUROR QUALIFICATION FORM within (10) days of receipt), which includes Part B (on the back of the summons - Items 1 through 23). This information can be completed on-line (Select Juror Qualification Form on the left). In addition to completing on-line, the website also allows you to update your juror profile or to submit a request (one time only) that your service is postponed to a later date. If any responses require documentation, you will not be able to complete your questionnaire online. You must complete the paper version and mail it to the address on your summons along with your required documentation. If any of your answers on the form disqualify or exempt you from serving, or if your request for a postponement of service is granted, you will be notified before the date your service is to begin (as shown on the bottom right portion of the summons) and you will not have to attend. If you are no longer a resident of the county, you will NOT receive notification of your excusal. Again, it is important that you return the form within ten (10) days as requested.
If you prefer or if requesting to be excused or disqualified, your completed summons-Jury Qualification form may be returned to the Court via mail with any relevant documentation (refer to the DOCUMENTATION CODE LEGEND noted in Part B). This ensures Jury Office receives your information timely.
