If you can prove that you haven't lived there in 2 years maybe they can clear it up? It was just a misunderstanding after all.

23 - yes OP can how proof of address but in my opinion it's OP's fault because you are supposed to fill out a change in address form when you move. It's ridiculous how many people don't do that. I bought my house over 2 years ago and have to write "return to sender" on mail weekly. I still get mail from about 5 different people that had previously lived in my house.

For starters, it has never been said that Anyone must send in a change of address. That law has never been written. Also, the change of address forms expire after 6 months. It is up to the state to make sure they have the right address.

I think i'm about to face the same dilemma... My ex-mother in law told me a few days ago that she had received a summons for me months ago, and then when she finally opened it, the date had already passed. Since i dont have any run ins with the law, i can only imagine it was for jury duty. She can't find the summons, i haven't lived at that address in 5 years and my ex and i divorced a year ago. Something tells me they will be knocking on my door soon :/

Keep in mind that having to take time out of your life to clear things up is still a major pain in the ass! So FYL, OP!

If she's been getting the rest of her mail for those two years then chances are good that she filed a change of address. I filed a change of address form and called a ton of places to update my records when I moved but my old address still gets some of my mail on occasion.

OP may have filed a postal change of address, but I don't think this is what the (local state) government uses when issuing Jury duty notices. I think they may go by voter registration address, but I don't know for sure.

I got a jury duty notice in my mail once for the old owners of my house and they told me to throw it away... Wonder what kind of trouble they got in.

#11 You seem to not understand the difference between federal government and local law enforcement.

With the US government shutdown, I doubt you'll be followed up on it anytime soon. Lady Luck is smiling upon you now.
