The Administrative Appeals Unit conducts administrative reviews of substantiated findings of abuse and neglect in relation to a request for an amendment, and refers cases that remain substantiated after the review to an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) to conduct a hearing. Administrative Appeals Unit attorneys represent the Justice Center before the ALJ during the hearing process.

To help foster a better understanding of the process, the Justice Center has developed an appeal process overview.
