What to do
1. Check your hearing date
You have to submit your documents by 5 pm at least 4 business days before the meeting.
For example, if your hearing is on a Monday, you have to submit your documents by the previous Tuesday at 5 pm.
2. Get your documents ready
Gather any paperwork, letters, emails, or other documents that could help your case.
Here's how to format and prepare your documents:
- Number the pages at the bottom
- Print them on 8.5 by 11 inch paper
- Punch holes on the left of each page so it can go into 3-ring binder
3. Submit your documents by the deadline
Email your documents and bring your original to our offices.
