Court Programs

The Judicial Branch Office of Families and Children provide support to all Judicial Districts in the State of Kansas to ensure compliance with Federal and State guidelines. The Kansas Alternative Dispute Resolution program receives its authority from K.S.A.5-501 et seq. and was created to encourage alternatives to litigation on a statewide basis. The office also provides guidance to judicial districts regarding several court services, including court security.

  • Child Support Enforcement: For information on how to get assistance with the collection of child support, learn about the court system's Child Support Guidelines.
  • Court Volunteers: Want to participate in some useful volunteerism? Two statewide programs that use volunteers to assist in the administration of justice are the Court Appointed Special Advocate programs and Citizen Review Boards. (Lists of offices and their directors included.)
  • Dispute Resolution: The Kansas Alternative Dispute Resolution program receives its authority from K.S.A.5-501 et seq. and was created to encourage alternatives to litigation on a statewide basis.

  • Parenting Plans: The Kansas Legislature in K.S.A. 60-1626 instructed the Supreme Court to inform parents, or require them to be informed about how to prepare a parenting plan.
