I have been called for jury duty but never choosen. I doubt that a letter from my case workers at Mental Health would help. Maybe I smile too much or my cheerful happy greeting gives them some unintended impression. If I had children at home to takecare of, I would certainly take them with me to court so they could observe such proceedings. rather than hiring a baby sitter as the court should have facilities for children also pets at home need care and attention. Of course children and pets can be attended to by others for a reasonable price that the court should be obliged to pay. Also parking permits, transportation cost, lost wadges from work, even household work and all those tasks you may normally do like taking a meal to yor mother at 3pm...doing laundry 3 days a week and all the other little tasks you normally do in a week listed as a work schedule for your replacement while on jury duty. So being on jury duty would be like going on vacation for a hard working woman at home most days...it is work, and jourers are usually paid to serve ;so....pay the help judge.

My state selects possible jurors from driver liscenses. Then you reciceve a quetionaire to answer possible concerns. You can request to be relieved of duty. After that you get a phone number or web site to see if your group has been chosen. Then you know if you must go. After 40 some years I have filled out 2 question things but never been called. Also after 70 years old a person is exempt. This is in Michigan.
