Please note: Extreme Financial Hardship Excuses can ONLY be granted by a Judge. Do not submit this type of request to the Jury Commissioner's Office. It will be denied.

If you are instructed to report during your assigned week, you will have the opportunity to make this request in person before a Judge. When you report, please bring your company’s written policy on jury duty to the Court. Please contact your company's HR or Payroll Division when you receive this Jury Summons so that they have sufficient time to provide you with documentation of their pay policy for jury duty. The Court will ask you the following information:

1. Does your company pay for jury duty?

2. If so, how many days does your company pay for jury duty?

Not being paid by your employer or being self-employed will be considered, but does not mean that you will be automatically excused.
