Events Leading To Exposure To The Courts In Elmhurst, Illinois

Jury Duty: All adult U.S. citizens who live in Elmhurst are eligible to be called for jury duty in Elmhurst, Illinois. This is the only way that many people interact with the court system. If you are called to serve in jury duty (normally, every person is eligible to be called for jury duty once per year), when you get the letter from the court telling you to show up for jury duty (normally a few weeks after the letter arrives), you are legally obligated to do so on the appointed date. You are then placed in a large "juror pool," and called into a courtroom that has an upcoming trial. The lawyers for each side of the case will then ask each juror some questions to determine if they are biased. If the lawyer doesn't want a juror serving on the jury, they can dismiss the juror (they only have a limited number of dismissals, however). If you are dismissed, you're done. If you end up on the jury, you are now serving a very important role in the justice system, and it's important that you follow all of the judge's instructions.

Being Sued: If you, unfortunately, are getting sued in a Elmhurst, Illinois court, it's almost given that you'll be spending a lot of time dealing with the local court system. You have to file some type of response (normally an answer or motion to dismiss) to the lawsuit, and there will be many procedural issues that might result in disputes that the court has to resolve. All of this happens in most lawsuits, even if they don't go to trial.

Divorce: While not all divorces in Elmhurst, Illinois require the partners to spend a significant period of time in court, some of them do, especially when disagreements arise that the spouses can't settle amongst themselves.
