Thank you for your question.

Which State are you in?

Does the summons form have a questionnaire asking if you are a citizen?

Santa Clara county, California.
Yes it has a questionnaire for not qualified with one option as not a citizen. My summon was in the week of 1/26/16 and I didn't reply.
But I did submitt that questionnaire today, through online. Is that ok if I responded after my summon due date? Or I need to do something more.
Lawyer: N Cal Atty, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

No you do not have to do anything more. I was going to suggest that you return it late and answer No to the question asking if you are a citizen, but you already did that.

You will not be punished for returning the form late.

I hope this information is helpful.

Hi,
As we discussed above I did submit No to the questionnaire via online form. But I still got a mail that I have missed my summon and have 14days to get it re scheduled. Do need to re submit the questionnaire via mail?
Lawyer: N Cal Atty, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

It cannot hurt to resubmit the form by mail. Once they realize that you are not a citizen, they should stop sending you those forms.

You could phone the Clerk of the Court or the Jury Commissioner that issued the summons and make it clear that as a non-citizen you are not allowed to sit on a jury.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
