ALR Notice Update
Recently, the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) has moved to using eFile for ALRs. Before then, everything was handled by fax. This move to eFile has caused some issues for both DPS and ALR Lawyers. Recently, Amended Notices of Hearing are being sent to our clients rather than to our office. The Amended Notice of Hearing is the letter that provides the ALR second setting after the first setting is “5 day’d” (meaning we use our 5 day continuance that we are entitled to request). While our office receives the new dates through an eFiled order, the letters still appear to be going out. This appears to be a change by the main DPS headquarters in Austin.
Because of this, please keep an eye on your mail for any DPS letters. If and when you receive anything from DPS, let our office know so it can be noted in your file. As always, feel free to contact our offices if you have any questions.
