Questionnaire Hearing Law and Legal Definition

A questionnaire hearing refers to a hearing conducted by correspondence. In a questionnaire hearing, each hearing party submits position statements, exhibits, and written answers to the judge’s questionnaire, by mail. However, at present, questionnaire hearings are only provided for claimants who are incarcerated. Out-of-state claimants, who were previously provided with questionnaire hearings, are now provided telephone hearings.
