What if I am unable to attend a hearing?
If you have a good reason for not being able to attend a scheduled hearing, you
must immediately file a written request asking the presiding officer to continue the hearing
to another date. You will need to state the specific reasons for the continuance. Iowa
Administrative Code 621 – 2.5. If you fail to attend the hearing without requesting and
getting a new hearing date, the case may be decided against you even if you do not attend.
