    No, explain why you did not attend, and update your address.

    Call them, give them your new address, and reschedule to go to jury duty on a different date.

    In MY State you are required to advise the Court Clerk in writing of your new address AND why you didn't appear. If you don't appear - again, in MY State - a warrant is issued for your arrest.

    No, but you should contact the Court and explain what happened.

    Not likely. Contact the court and explain why you missed the date and ask to have a new date assigned. This is fairly normal.

    You should contact the court and explain the situation to them immediately so that you won't get in trouble. Provide proof that you are living at a different address and they will either have you reschedule for a different date or they may just throw it out and tell you not to worry about it.

    Call the county courthouse and speak to the person in charge of juries. Tell them your story and you will just get a new call to serve. You have to actively avoid service and if you call you are not doing that.

    Relax, it's fine, the case went ahead and they had enough jurors.

      That's right, they summon lots of people because they understand there'll be persons unsuitable and persons who fail to respond
