Why Did the ADFG Office Close My File Before a Hearing?

There are circumstances when the ADFG Office may close your file without a hearing. The ADFG Office will deem an appeal abandoned and therefore closed, for one or more of the following reasons:

1) You fail to complete your appeal with all required documentation and/or within the appropriate timelines.

2) You do not make yourself available and/or are unresponsive to communications or requests, and you do not provide valid reasons and/or appropriate documentation to explain your unavailability/unresponsiveness.

3) You do not make yourself available to have your appeal heard by the second available hearing week, and do not provide valid reasons and/or documentation explaining why you need the hearing deferred.
