The questionnaire is addressed to my son/daughter who is away at college. What should I do?

Forward the questionnaire to your son/daughter at college and have him/her mail the questionnaire to the Court. Or you may fill out the questionnaire for him/her, sign your name, indicate you are his/her parent, and return the questionnaire to the Court.

If selected for jury service, the Court will mail a Summons For Jury Duty approximately 30 days prior to the month of service.

If summoned for a month when he/she is at college, he/she can call the Jury Administrator, at that time, and request that his/her jury service be deferred. Your son/daughter would have to permanently move and declare residency in a state other than Virginia to be exempt from jury service in Virginia. This would require a change to his/her driver's license and/or voter registration.
