Change registration status

To change status to active or reinstate from a suspension, contact the Attorney Registration office for instructions and forms to complete. Be sure to include your attorney registration number in your request.

To change to inactive or retired status during the current licensing period, log on to the Attorney Registration Portal and submit a request to change your status online. The licensing period in Kansas begins July 1 and ends on June 30 each year.

  • Choose “View/Update My Profile” and then click on the “Request Status Change” button.

  • Select the new status and input the effective date desired for the change. You must be age 66, on or before the effective date, and have retired from the practice of law, in order to change to retired status. If you do not meet the age requirement, that option will not be available to you.

  • After you submit the change, a confirmation page will be displayed and you will also receive an email confirming the status change and the effective date.​

To be relieved of the CLE requirement for the current year and pay the lower fee for inactive or no fee for retired status for the next licensing period, your request must be submitted no later than June 30.

You can also change to inactive or retired status when you submit your annual registration online which will open in May. The change will not be effective until July 1, and you will still be required to complete the annual CLE requirement for the current year by June 30 if you are currently on active status. Status changes submitted online when registering must be completed by June 30. If you complete your annual registration online after June 30, you will have to pay the registration fee and late fee based on your status as of July 1.
