Jury Duty Financial Hardship Letter – Sample

Updated July 19, 2023

A jury duty financial hardship letter is used by a prospective juror to be excused from jury service due to the extreme financial burden it would bring. Depending on the jurisdiction of the court, the prospective juror may also be required to submit a letter from their employer confirming this claim. The letter should be signed and sent to the listed address on the jury summons prior to the mandated deadline.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to be excused from my jury service scheduled for Nov. 21-25, 2022. Serving during this time would bring me extreme financial burden. As a car salesman, I make a living off of commission in order to support my two children as a single mother.

November is always a very busy time in the business and I cannot afford to lose sales during this time. Due to slow business at the dealership in these past few months, I am behind on my mortgage payments and other bills, including my children’s daycare tuition. Not working for an extended period of time would jeopardize the livelihood of myself and my family, for whom I am the sole supporter.

Please find attached a copy of my recent paystubs, mortgage bill, my bank statements, as well as a letter from my employer confirming my statements.
