my DP has been called for Jury Service. we got deferral first time on the ground of a new baby. now he has been called second time. Our DD1 starts reception far away from home and he was going to do school runs for her as I am full time at work. Also in summer he has started new work - new project which is setting up in September, so his absence will have a huge impact. the third reason is that hi Father has a disability and my DP taCan my DP ask at his work that his line manager writes supporting statement so that DP can be takes him to doctor's appoitments, cares for him. Can all of these be reasons for exscusal? His line manager can also write a supporting statement to show that it will have a huge impact on the new project at his new work? He is still on atrial/ probationary contract at his new work...Please help with ideas.

I'd just phone them and ask on Monday.

Do you have two threads on this?

There is a lot of advice on the other one.

I'm pretty sure you can only defer once so not sure there's much you can do other than make arrangements to muddle through the two weeks.
