Fair Hearing Services

August 31st, 2010    •   by admin    •   Comments Off

Once subjected to a supported finding by the Department of Children and Families a Fair Hearing is the only process to reverse the determination. Having a supported determination can affect your ability of employment, or school volunteer work.

To obtain a reversal decision it takes skill at understanding the regulations which need to be applied. The reality today is that even though 110 CMR regulations state you are entitled to a Fair hearing in ninety days, today it takes on average over a year to obtain a Fair hearing date.

Children First Advocacy has been successful at obtaining reversal decisions from Area Directors based on a review of information in some cases saving the monetary expense and emotional turmoil of having to participate in the process.

Children First Advocacy and or their employees or sub contractors do not provide legal advice in any situation. Children First Advocacy provides services associated with procedural actions concerning allegations child abuse or neglect and educational issues facing children and families in Massachusetts.
