This matter involved a Petition for Direct Appeal filed by a custodial parent who alleged her child-support case had been wrongfully closed by the Division of Child Support Services (DCSS).  The OSAH Judge denied this Petition, concluding that custodial parents do not have a right to an OSAH hearing when DCSS decides to close child-support cases.  Because the parent had no right to a hearing under the law, no grounds existed to grant the Petition for Direct Appeal.
