If you are filing, you have the opportunity to file an appeal to the Superior Court within thirty (30) days from the date that you received the Notice of DCF’s final decision.  Again, this would be after you have already had a fair hearing at a DCF office with an administrative fair hearing officer.  The clerk needs to actually receive the appeal before the deadline; so simply mailing it will not be adequate.  You need to prepare your documents, you will need to do the Complaint for Judicial Review and you need to explain the possible grounds for the appeal would be.
