It may be possible to schedule your hearing for a date later than when you're scheduled. You may submit a written request to reschedule your hearing for a later date by mail, fax, or e-mail ([email protected]) . Your written request should explain why you want a later hearing date. If you have received a formal notice of hearing, you should assume that you must appear at your scheduled hearing, unless otherwise notified. Failure to attend your hearing may cause your good cause exception application to be denied.
The Board will not give you a hearing date earlier than when you're scheduled. The Board staff schedules hearings in order according to the amount of time it has spent processing the application. The Board will not force another applicant to wait for a hearing just so your hearing can take place sooner.
