Filing Information

You are here

The Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) encourages electronic filing of all submissions, by e-mail.  OHA’s e-mail address for filing submissions is; the OHA FAX number is (202) 287-1415. We will send an acknowledgment (by letter or e-mail) upon our receipt of all principal pleadings.

If you choose to file by regular mail, we caution that under governmental security procedures now in place, the U.S. Postal Service randomly selects items of first class mail addressed to OHA for screening at a facility outside of OHA, e.g. for irradiation of potentially hazardous  materials.  This irradiation process can delay mail delivery by over 45 days.   We, therefore, encourage electronic filing of time-sensitive submissions.
