If you have been served with an Accusation seeking revocation of your child care center or family child care home license don’t delay in filing your Notice of Defense. You must file the Notice of Defense by a strict deadline to preserve your right to an Administrative Hearing.
Receiving an Accusation can be devastating. The document itself serves as formal notice of CDSS’s initiation of an administrative action to revoke your child care center or family child care home license. Once served, you have a limited amount of time to file a Notice of Defense. Fortunately, CDSS makes this process easy by serving you with 2 copies of the Notice of Defense along with the Accusation. The Notice of Defense will give you clear instructions on how to complete and submit the document. Accordingly, filing the Notice of Defense is the easy part of your case; the hard part is defending yourself in an Administrative hearing.
Question:how can I mess up filing the Notice of Defense?
