[Q] | MAY I OBJECT TO THE MATTERS CONTAINED IN A RECOMMENDED ORDER?
Yes, such objections are called "exceptions" and must be filed with the head of the agency proposing to take action (not DOAH or the Judge), normally within 15 days after the date of a Recommended Order. The exceptions should explain the particular portions of the Recommended Order with which you disagree and the specific reasons for your disagreement. If you believe that the Judge made a mistake concerning the facts in your case, you should point out those parts of the transcript that support your argument. If you cannot meet the deadline for submitting exceptions, you should write to the agency head and ask for an extension before the deadline.
