Hello, looking for some advice please. I've received a notice of potential to be called for jury duty, with a form to complete to confirm I am eligible or to declare a reason either by right or on special grounds for excusal. I have a 3 month old baby who I am exclusively breastfeeding and for whom I am full time carer, with no childcare available. Is this likely to be accepted by the court (Scottish Sheriff court) as a valid reason to at least defer being called up for several months? Also, it asks for evidence for the special reasons, not sure what I can provide.
thanks all. I'll send a copy of her birth certificate. Hopefully I will get the same result as SoupDragon. I just can't think of a way to keep feeding her or even expressing while trying to under a serious civic duty - one which ironically enough I have always wanted to do!
I did this when my ds was 4 months old for a jury summons from the sherrif court in Glasgow. I just wrote on the bottom of the form. They deferred it for a year and I ended up doing it when he was about 18 months old.
