Deferment Requirements

By law jurors are permitted a maximum of one deferment. A deferment request must be made two weeks notice prior to your service date.

The deferment time frame is a maximum of eight weeks. For a longer deferment, the juror must have a doctor's letter or medical affidavit with an expected recovery time.

We require a written letter for our records as to why you would like a deferment and when within the next eight weeks you would be available to serve. You may choose one of two ways; fax your letter to 770-528-1808, or you may send us a letter in the mail.
