Contract Disputes and Property Disputes in Kansas

Parties often transact in good faith in Kansas, but a contract is a formal and documented agreement that protects all parties when disputes arise. In many cases, the parties involved fail to resolve the dispute and seek relief in Kansas courts. Officials at the court where the aggrieved party files maintain court records on the proceedings from filing until final adjudication.   

Records that are considered public may be accessible from some third-party websites. These websites often make searching for records simpler, as geographic locations do not limit their activities. Thus, the search engines on third-party sites may help when starting a search for specific or multiple records. To begin using such a search engine on a third-party or government website, interested parties usually must provide:

  • The name of the person involved in the record, unless said person is a juvenile
  • The location or assumed location of the record or persons involved in the case. These include information such as the city, county, or state of residence or accusation.

Third-party sites are independent of government sources and are not government-sponsored. Consequently, record availability on third-party sites may vary.
