How To Access Kansas Divorce Records
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment maintains and issues certified copies of certificates from statewide divorces granted from July, 1951 to the present. Certificate copies of Kansas divorce records are also available from the county district courts. A Kansas divorce certificate includes the names of both parties, plus the dates of the marriage and dissolution of that marriage.
The county district courts, through the Clerk of Court office, typically issues not only divorce certificates, but also copies of decrees. A divorce decree is several pages long and contains settlement specifics, property and/or debt repayment division and other details of the court ruling on that particular dissolution of marriage case.
