Students

Full-time students can postpone their jury service and should serve during school breaks.


Financial Hardship Excuse - Only a judge can grant a hardship excuse.

You must provide your company’s written policy on jury duty to the Court if you are asking to be excused based upon extreme financial hardship. 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 if you are claiming extreme financial hardship:

1. Does your company pays for jury duty, and

2. 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.

Do not send your jury information to the Jury Commissioner’s Office. Please bring it with you when you report for services.
