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, sign your name, indicate you are his 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 is at college, he can call the Jury Administrator, at that time, and request that his 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.
