Rules and Procedures

Court Rules are a set of procedural regulations adopted by courts which are mandatory upon parties and their lawyers on matters within the jurisdiction of those courts. The Rules adopted by the Supreme Court of Kansas are the statewide rules of court. District court judges adopt what are called "local rules" of court.

Court rules encompass the time allowed to file papers, the format of documents (including the paper colors of appeal court briefs), the number of copies to be filed, the procedure to file motions, the basis for calculating alimony and child support, fees for filing various documents, and numerous vital legal matters.
