Ask Ms. Vicki: What About Jury Duty?

Dear Ms. Vicki,

I've recently received a random jury duty survey letter (not a summons) and started to wonder if military spouses are exempt from jury duty while PCS-ing with their active-duty spouse?

I am from New York and I am now living in Nevada with my husband, an active-duty airman stationed here.

Sincerely, Wondering About Jury Duty

Dear JD,

I did some checking with the legal office on base and they advised that you should be exempt from jury duty because you are no longer in the area. You can use the contact information you received to respond to the letter.

This is a very important question, so if you discover any additional information, please write again and share what you’ve gleaned. It could be helpful to other readers.

Sincerely, Ms. Vicki
