Kansas Divorce Records Information
Certified Kansas Divorce Records
The only way to obtain a certified copy of your divorce record in Kansas is to visit or contact the office of the Clerk of Kansas Court in the county where your divorce was finalized. There is a fee for this, but the fee is set by the individual court’s office. Each office accepts their own forms of payment, but all court offices require the same information.
– You must be one of the people listed on the divorce certificate
– You must be one of the children of the person listed on the divorce certificate
– You must be a parent of one of the people listed on the divorce certificate
– You must pay the fee
– You must provide valid photo identification
These items are non-negotiable. Some county offices allow you to send this information via mail or email, but others require you visit in person. Ask about cut-off times for same day service if you plan on making a trip to the office.
