Kansas Divorce Records

Divorce Records in Kansas

Many marriages end up in divorce court. The Kansas state regulates divorces, and therefore, they maintain the divorce records. Typically, the divorce records are stored at the county courthouse where the divorce was filed and finalized. In some case, the state has a state or central repository where the records may also be stored. Certified copies can only be obtained at the county courthouse.

Basic information about the divorce couple is usually reported on their divorce record. It includes:
• the husband’s full name
• the wife’s full name including her maiden name
• the name of the county where the divorce took place
• the recorded or filing date of the divorce
• the actual date of the finalized divorce
• a certificate number for identification purposes

Several states report the number of children who were living with the parents and were over the age of eighteen.

Divorce records will be found under the name of the husband since this is how they are filed. If you don’t know the county in which the divorce was filed, then you will need to begin your search at the state level. Additionally, you can conduct a search one county at a time. Finally, you can conduct a search of past and current spouses. A search for spouses usually generates the addresses for the individuals as well.

When requesting divorce records, try to provide as much of the requested information as possible. This will result in a quicker search. Genealogical searches typically take longer since some or most of the information may be unavailable. Most county courthouses only have records from 1900 and later.

Usually, two to ten days are required to process request for certified copies of divorce records. The courthouse charges a nominal fee to cover the cost of the copy.

Following the steps here will produce a more efficient and timely search.

1. Print or type each name and address clearly to avoid confusion. This includes the full name of both the husband and the wife. The maiden name should be included for the wife.
2. Keep your request brief and to the point.
3. Limit your request to one document.
4. Include the full names of the individuals, including nicknames and alternate spellings that may have been used.
5. Include the full address of the individual at the time of the divorce, including street, city or town, and state. If you know the county in which the divorce took place, include that as well.
6. Include the date that the divorce was finalized. If you do not have this piece of information available, include a time frame for the search. Generally, it is best to specify a short span of years for an unknown year search. You can always expand the number of years that you search, and a shorter span will lead to a shorter search. You can expect to pay an additional fee for searches such as this that require more effort.
7. Include contact information where you can be reached in the event that more information is required. Include a daytime telephone number, as well as, an evening telephone number. You may also include a fax number or an e-mail address.
8. You should include your relationship to the individual’s listed in your search request.
9. You should include the purpose of your request.
10. Print your name clearly and sign your request. Some states may also require additional identifying information on you as well, including a driver’s license number.
11. Include a SASE, or self addressed stamped envelope with your request for a speedier delivery.
12. Include the date that you mail your request with your correspondence.
