How Will I Be Notified?

How will I be notified of a hearing?

A hearing notice will be mailed to all involved parties and their representatives at least 14 days in advance of the scheduled hearing.

Read the Notice

Read the Notice of Hearing carefully.

The Notice of Hearing will have the following important information:

  • ALJ Case Number(s)
  • Names and addresses of all parties who will be attending the hearing
  • The telephone numbers at which each party will be called
  • The Date and Time of the hearing
  • The Purpose of the Hearing


Special Instructions. Read the Special Instructions carefully. They will advise you to produce documents or witnesses at the hearing.  If you are unable to produce these documents or witnesses at the hearing, be prepared to explain why you were unable to produce them. Special Instructions may appear on the front or reverse sides of the Notice of Hearing.

The Notice of Hearing will be accompanied by the hearing file containing documents which may be used at the hearing. (See the section, "Hearing Case File," below.) It is very important that you have these documents with you when the ALJ telephones you for the hearing.
