Do your jury duty.

Manhattan Criminal Court:
The boring introductory speech takes about 45 minutes, and should begin relatively on time. Therefore, coming 45 minutes late is no big deal.

If you have a deferment, don't waster your time at the criminal court. Go straight to 60 Centre Street room 139. The line can get busy, so try to come at a good time.

In Baltimore, nearly every 6 weeks someone in my family will be summoned. (6 Adults). Anyone else get summoned at least once a year?

I don't recommend ignoring it since that can lead to an outstanding warrant.

You are better off by just responding that she is out of the country while you complete your studies.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

They can't send a warrant when they have no proof that it was delivered

showing her tickets or visa should be fine. not any more of a hassle than jury duty itself

But less of a hassle than writing a reply to them beforehand.

Just a follow up..... I called them and they had me send in a bill with my wifes name on it and a address in israel ( even though it was all in hebrew) they accepted it and said she was taken off the list.
Thanx for all the input
