Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Kansas continues to provide access to its courts but in a manner that protects you and the judges and employees who serve your community. If you have court business, try completing that business online, by phone, or by mail. If that’s not possible, call the court for direction.

Dispute resolution

A neutral mediator can help you and another party in a dispute. They help you identify issues, reduce misunderstandings, clarify priorities, explore areas of compromise, and find points of agreement. You decide on an agreement, not the mediator.
