What Will Happen at My Hearing?

Home What Will Happen at My Hearing?
Legally reviewed by Brendan Garcia , Owner and Lead Attorney

You and your attorney will appear before an administrative law judge (ALJ). Hearings are relatively informal compared with a hearing in a criminal or civil court. You will be asked to testify about a number of issues regarding your health and issues that may help the judge define your disability. There may be expert witnesses. A decision will not be given at the end of the hearing. Expect a decision to arrive several weeks later.
