I received a petit jury duty summons in the mail today that is for the end of October. However, I'm going to be moving sometime in the next few months or early next year. I'm looking at the "worst case" scenario in that I get called to serve on a jury for a trial that might last for months, which would screw up my move along with bringing issues with things like move-out notifications (my apartment complex requires a 60-day notice).

Any tips on how I might be able to deal with this? Should I just go ahead and make my move plans and if, heaven forbid, there is a situation where I'm serving on a jury for along trial that comes during this time, speak to the court clerk about it? I'm just not sure what to do and I don't want to be stressed out with my move plans because of this summons.

My $0.00 cents worth, and worth what you paid for it.

A Petit jury won't go for months.
Show up, do the day there and you will likely be finished with it.

If you already moved out of the current county before summon date, then you should be disqualified from service.

Sec. 62.102. GENERAL QUALIFICATIONS FOR JURY SERVICE. A person is disqualified to serve as a petit juror unless the person:
(1) is at least 18 years of age;
(2) is a citizen of the United States;
(3) is a resident of this state and of the county in which the person is to serve as a juror;
(4) is qualified under the constitution and laws to vote in the county in which the person is to serve as a juror;
(5) is of sound mind and good moral character;
(6) is able to read and write;
(7) has not served as a petit juror for six days during the preceding three months in the county court or during the preceding six months in the district court;
(8) has not been convicted of misdemeanor theft or a felony; and
(9) is not under indictment or other legal accusation for misdemeanor theft or a felony.
