It is important that you are always honest when answering these questions. You may also be asked if you need to take extra bathroom breaks, and if so, how often and why, and any other questions intended to determine your ability to hold gainful employment. The Conference is also recommending that the record before the ALJ be closed at a set time after the hearing. The Rules of Evidence are Relaxed In a state court, judges spend a lot of their time making decisions about the admissability of evidence. You must, however, understand what will occur during this hearing and how to tip the scales in your favor for the best chance of a favorable hearing outcome.

      What issues are or are not in dispute. If you have filed for benefits and been denied disability we can assist in your appeal. This makes legal representation affordable to almost all disability applicants. Get the experienced guidance you need now.

      The ALJ erred in ignoring evidence provided by the treating physician. A disability attorney can help you sort out these facts and make sure your case is presented with all the details about your case accounted for. There are three general determinations under which your case will fall that determine your review schedule. For example, if a Claimant continues to be insured for disability benefits while the appeal is pending, the Claimant can provide updated medical records. Make sure you submit this information as soon as possible to the administrative law judge presiding over your case. One of the most important documents you can have from your primary treating doctor is a medical source statement.
