|(a) After a designated perpetrator requests a release
hearing, DFPS will ask the State Office of Administrative Hearings
(SOAH) to appoint an administrative law judge to conduct proceedings
necessary to make a final decision in the case.
(b) After SOAH assigns a docket number to your case:
(1) DFPS will send notice of the hearing, by regular
and certified mail, to the designated perpetrator's last known address
as shown by our records; or
(2) If the Docket Clerk has received written notice
of representation from an attorney who will be representing the designated
perpetrator at the hearing, DFPS will send the notice of the hearing
to the attorney in a manner allowed under the rules referenced in §700.606
of this title (relating to How is a release hearing conducted?).
(c) The designated perpetrator is responsible for providing
the Docket Clerk with written notification of any change in address
that occurs after having requested a release hearing.
