At the hearing, the Administrative Law Judge will place the parties and any witnesses under oath and question them about the issues involved in the appeal. The parties can appear alone or with a representative. A representative can be an attorney or any other person the party chooses to help present the case.
The parties should bring along any documents or witnesses that may possibly help their case. The parties can send a written request to the Judge to have witnesses and/or documents subpoenaed for the hearing. The request must contain the name and home address of the witness, and a specific statement of what the testimony or documents will prove. The request must be received at least 72 hours (three days) before the time of the hearing.
