I did maybe a year ago and I ignored it...nothing happened. But today I got another one. I don't want to get in trouble for ignoring it, especially a second time...but I can not do this! I have severe social anxiety disorder....just thinking about having to do this is causing a panic attack! Not to mention that I have no way of getting to and from the court house or someone to watch my son. Have you ever ignored one? Any suggestions?

If you have a small child the you can be excused. I called the Jury Duty office (I found the number in the phone book). I explained that I have a small child to care for. So the lady told me to make a copy of my childs birth certificate & send it with a note saying that I am the primary caregiver for my child & send it back with the jury questionnaire. If you don't get a letter back then you are excused. I did this twice for both my kids.
