Searching through divorce court records can be a costly and time-consuming task – especially if you’re a novice at searching through court records. It’s easy to become confused with all the “legalese” contained in the reports and there is usually tons of paperwork involved in the court process. Now, the law requires that states file divorce records and the public may have access to these records. Most states charge a fee for the search and some have limitations about how many years they can search through and how much information you can have access to. A single copy of a Kansas divorce record is $15 (also $15 for each additional copy) and if they don’t find the record they keep the fee and you will receive a letter stating that the record you requested wasn’t located. To order a copy of Kansas divorce records, you must download a copy of the divorce record application, fill it out and send it to the following address with the appropriate fee:
Vital Statistics Office
Curtis State Office Bldg.
1000 SW Jackson, Suite 120
Topeka, KS 66612-2221
You’ll need to include a copy of your photo identification with the application which could be in the form of a state or military ID, passport or driver’s license. You’ll be required to state on the application who you are (relative, legal representative or other) as related to the divorced couple and information about the divorce such as the names on the divorce decree, when and where the divorce was granted and why you’re requested the record. Your mailing address should also be included as well as a phone number where you can be reached during the day. Applications that don’t include the requested information will be returned.
If the process of going through the state sounds too complicated and time-consuming, you have another option. If you have access to the Internet, you can choose one of the reputable online search services to do the work for you and receive a report including the information you need. These services charge a reasonable fee and are backed by potent search engines that perform a records search far beyond what the state offers. You’ll also have the advantage of the fee-based service being able to perform searches in many states just in case the divorce record you’re searching for wasn’t granted in Kansas. All of the information you provide is strictly confidential, and you don’t have to reveal who you are and the reason for your search. The results of the search by an online service will reveal much more information than you’d receive from a state search – and, it will be easy to read and professional for any use you might need it for.
