One-Step Questionnaire/Summons

Beginning in September 2013, the Third Circuit Court introduced the new One-Step Juror Qualification/Questionnaire Form and Juror Summons. Please complete both the Part A - Qualification section and the Part B - Juror Questionnaire (Personal History) section. Please detach and retain the Summons portion of the form for future reference regarding your anticipated date of service. Please return the completed Part A and B portion of the Questionnaire in the envelope provided.

Failure to appear for service when instructed to do so can result in a Show Cause Hearing appearance as well as a possible contempt of court charge.

For your convenience the Quick Link for the Online Jury Questionnaire provides you with the opportunity to complete the Juror Qualification/Questionnaire Form online.

Jury service is for one day or one trial. When you appear if you are not selected for a trial, generally your jury service is completed that day. If you are selected, you will serve as a juror for the duration of that trial. The average length of a trial is 3-4 days. You must have a face covering to enter the courthouse.
