Events Leading To Exposure To The Courts In Casper, Wyoming

Jury Duty: All adult U.S. citizens who live in Casper are eligible to be called for jury duty in Casper, Wyoming. This is the only way that many people deal with the court system. If you are called to serve in jury duty (typically, 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 (typically a few weeks after the letter arrives), you are legally required 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.

Filing a Lawsuit: If you file a lawsuit in Casper, Wyoming, you will have to deal with the court system quite a bit, even if your matter never goes to trial. You, or your lawyer, will have to show up in court to file the proper paperwork, attend preliminary hearings, case management conferences, and resolve discovery disputes. Even if no trial occurs, you will become intimately acquainted with the courts in Casper, Wyoming.

Being Sued: If you, unfortunately, are getting sued in a Casper, Wyoming court, it's almost certain that you'll be spending a lot of time dealing with the local court system. You have to file some type of response (typically 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 Casper, Wyoming require the partners to spend a significant period of time in court, some of them do, particularly when disagreements arise that the spouses can't settle amongst themselves.
