Arizona Fingerprint Board Hearing
Are you facing an Arizona Fingerprint Board Hearing, but don’t know what to expect? Individuals who are denied a fingerprint clearance card or have had one suspended must apply for a good cause exception with the Arizona Fingerprint Board. If the initial expedited review of your good cause exception application is denied, the case is then automatically forwarded to a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. The primary reason a good cause exception is initially denied is because there is a criminal case still pending or you haven’t completed the terms of probation.
How you can end up in front of an Arizona Fingerprint Board Hearing:
- If you are denied your initial good cause exception or central registry exception.
- A criminal case is still pending an outcome.
- You are still completing probationary terms of your criminal conviction.
This hearing is at the Arizona Board of Fingerprinting where you must physically appear. You will need to arrive at the time and date specified in your notice of hearing. When the hearing begins, you will appear in a conference room before the administrative law judge. The administrative law judge will then swear you in and ask you questions specific to your case.
