Frequently asked questions
 

Can I bring my child/children with me? 
    The courthouse does not have child care facilities and children are not allowed in the courtrooms, so jurors need     to make arrangements for childcare prior to the morning of juror service. 

Will I be paid for being a juror? 
    
Yes. You will receive a check for $30.00 for the first day and each day afterwards, if you are selected to be a juror     for a trial.
I lost my summons for juror service.  What should I do?  
    Please contact the office at (912) 554.7325 as soon as possible, so that a deputy clerk can verify which date and     which court you are summoned for. 

Why is jury service important? 
    The United States Constitution and the Georgia Constitution guarantee all people, regardless of race, religion,          sex, national origin, or economic status, the right to a trial by a jury. 

What is my duty as a juror? 
    As a juror, you must remain fair and impartial.
