Part of being a contributing citizen is being willing to serve on jury duty. It is a civic duty to be willing to serve in this way. And of course, most of us would be more than happy to serve. However, there are phases of life when taking time out of your regular life to participate in a jury is such an unrealistic expectation. Whether you are the sole breadwinner for your family, caring for elderly parents, parenting young children, or dealing with personal illness, many people look for exemptions or deferrals when the summons is received in the mail. But what about homeschoolers? Can they look for exemption or deferral?

HSLDA members have an extra resource available to them to help them in this scenario. Watch as Kerry describes how members can deal with the summons when it arrives in the mail.

Have you ever been summoned for jury duty? Did HSLDA help you to be excused or to defer the request? In the comments, share your jury duty story. And stay tuned for the rest of this series of interviews with Kerry. Over the next several weeks, you will learn about Insurance and Government letters and the great resource that the HSLDA member site is in these, and many more, questions.
