Postponement / Deferral of Service

Washington County will generally defer service one time unless good cause is shown. If you are unable to serve on the date for which you have been summoned to appear, use the jury summons postcard or the online Juror Response Form to request a deferral.

Jurors are asked to propose other possible dates to fulfill their service. These proposed dates may not be more than one (1) year from the original jury summons date. A new jury summons will be sent to you for the new term of jury service. You may defer your service to any day of the week, except for Monday, as this is not a day that jurors typically report for jury duty. If you have questions regarding deferral, please contact the Jury Coordinator.
