Can you be called for jury duty while on a Permanent Resident Status?

11 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

Basically that is my question. While on a Permanent Resident Status can you be called for Jury Duty?

Yellowlight-Yes, as a permanent resident, you can receive a notice for jury duty...

As notices like that are randomly sent, really....

However.....PERMANENT RESIDENTS CANNOT SERVE ON A JURY!

And by doing such, it would be illegal, and one would have serious consequences if they served on such...

For example, if you serve on a jury as a permanent resident, you will not be allowed to have citizenship (and yes, they do ask about that on the citizenship process).

ONLY CITIZENS CAN SERVE ON A JURY.

So if a permanent resident ever gets a notice for jury duty...

Simply return the form and say..."cannot serve on the jury, not a citizen..."

And don't lie/not tell the truth about this either!

Hope this helps. Good luck.

My wife applied for a stae ID

Three weeks later she recieved a letter for jury duty.

The form had a line item, Are You a Citizen, Check No and send it back.

Only citizens can serve Jury Duty.

But any, Legal, resident can be random ly selected, but not serve.

When I was an LPR I got so many of those, I just checked Non-USC and send it back. Now that I'm a USC I have to go, that one thing where being a LPR is better then a USC...

You have a chance of getting a Jury Duty letter every time your name pops up in a state-run database system. i.e applying for any kind of License, voter registration, if your going through the process of buying a house, ect...

:devil: Another question; if you are a dual-USC, what will happen if you claim exemption and sent a copy of the OTHER passport as evidence?

you cannot do that, you are a USC of this country, you have the responsibility to serve your country on jury duty. That is part of the 100 questions you had to study for the test.
