Administrative Disqualifications for Families First




Table of Contents


Once an ADH has been held and a disqualification penalty is imposed, there is no further administrative remedy available.  If a disqualification penalty is imposed by either an ADH or by court order, it will remain in effect unless and until the finding on which the penalty was based is subsequently reversed by a court of appropriate jurisdiction.  The period of disqualification will continue even if the Families First case is closed.


The period of disqualification is not subject to administrative stay or review.  Therefore, the only way for the disqualification period to be altered is for a court to issue an order to change the period.  If a disqualified individual petitions for a judicial review of the period of the disqualification, any orders issued by the court must be followed.
