What if I care for a child or adult with a medical condition?

If you are a primary caregiver for someone with a medical condition, complete your Juror Qualification form and submit a note from that person’s physician stating that you are their primary caregiver and need to be excused. Complete the online Juror Qualification form, select the extreme and extraordinary hardship, and add details in the text box provided. A link to upload your scanned documents is available before you submit your online form. You will be notified of the Judge’s decision.

The physician may fax the document directly to the Jury Commission at 402-441-6190.

Nursing mothers need to submit a physician’s note stating your status along with the completed Juror Qualification form to be excused.
