Preparing for a Hearing

Once a case has been started, the Office of Administrative Hearings will mail or email you a Scheduling Order that sets the date and time of the hearing.

Please read the information in the Scheduling Order carefully as it will tell you how to prepare for the hearing and what information you may need to file before the day of the hearing.

Hearings are conducted by telephone, video conference, or in-erson. Please refer to your Scheduling Order for information on how to access your hearing.
