My partner Richard has got a letter today for Jury Serivice, its for 14th July, our babys due on 20th!!!!

Do you think we will have a good chance if we appeal against it?

Cant beleive this, what are the chances getting asked 6 days before babys due. Thing is if he had to go he would have to turn his mobile off and when my sister done it she was there 2 weeks!!!! Dont want him to miss the birth. Sad

i think you have a good enough reason to get out of it...give them a call as soon as you can and ask them...good luck, let us know how you get on. what a nightmare for you.

Get him to phone them up and explain, they should be able to postpone it. My hubby got called for JS and we were in middle of moving areas so they changed the date and court as the original one was in london and we moved to midlands.

hope this helps [/b]

Hi Mikhaela. I think as so close to babys due date they should def let him off. My DH was called for jury service and although I wasnt pg at the time it wasnt convinient and he was told he could turn it down once but would have to except nxt time unless extreme circumstance. Gd Luck pupx

i got out of jury service by saying it was an inconvienience and would cause problems at work which would lead to alot of stress on returning...
i think ther pretty good about it...
and i think you can refuse once so next time it comes round you have to do it...xxx
