Free parking instructions are available on this or the eJuror websites, or by calling 912-652-7170.  Bring the parking ticket you pull when entering the garage with you to the Jury Assembly Room so it can be validated.

Juror Excusal/Deferral/Disqualification Forms and Affidavits

Below are listed reasons to be disqualified, excused, or deferred from jury service that require you to complete a form or affidavit and then return it via mail, fax, as an attachment to an e-mail, or by bringing it to the Jury Services Office. Where and how to return the form is given on each of the forms or affidavits. You will need to print the form so you can fill it out and then complete it. If you are unable to print out the form, you may call or go to the Jury Services Office and request the form you need.

All forms or affidavits must be sent as soon as possible, must have your actual signature, and for trial jurors they must be received by Jury Services no later than 5 days before your summons week.

If you have been summoned for Grand Jury Service, you need to send any request to the presiding judge's office as listed on your summons. Grand Juror excusal/disqualification/deferral requests must be received by the presiding judge as soon as possible, but at least by the deadline listed on the Grand Jury Summons.


Note: All Affidavits are required to be notarized before returning them to Jury Services. Remember to wait until you are before a notary to sign your affidavit.
