How do I put a witness I had subpoenaed "on call" and not lose jurisdiction on him/her if he/she doesn't show up?

Woodland Hills, CA |

What do I need to do to cover myself ? A letter ? e Mail ? Also , if the witness is ordered back for a second ya , do I pay another day witness fee ? Thanks .

  1. Your subpoena must be personally served on the witness. Then call him/her in order to arrange a time that will be convenient for him/her. If for whatever reason you don't get to that witness on that day, ask the judge to order him/her back the next day.
