New case initiation through efiling

Case initiation as of noon January 26

Starting at noon Friday, January 26, new case initiation through the Kansas Courts eFiling system will be available for all case types EXCEPT appeals to the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court. 

You must set up a new TOGA wallet account if you haven't done so since the relaunch of Kansas Courts eFiling.  

Case initiation in select case types restored January 24 

New case initiation through the Kansas Courts electronic filing system is operable starting today for all case types EXCEPT: 

  • criminal

  • juvenile

  • fish and game

  • traffic

  • appeals

Courts operating on the efiling system are listed on the Status of District Court Restoration webpage. 

End-to-end electronic processing

Case initiation through efiling allows courts and attorneys to process cases electronically from beginning to end. Cases initiated on paper require subsequent filings to be on paper until the case is set up in the Kansas eCourt case management system.

District courts are currently adding paper filings made after the October 12 cyberattack to the case management system to bring the system up to date. At the same time, they continue to process current filings, whether they are made electronically or on paper.

Attorneys advised to set up new wallet accounts

Attorneys initiating new cases through the Kansas Courts eFiling system need to set up new wallet accounts to pay filing fees.

The judicial branch made upgrades to the efiling system before it was restored, and wallet accounts set up to work with the prior system no longer work.

Instructions for setting up a wallet account are on the eFiling Updates and Attorney Documentation webpage.

Tracking district court restoration progress

District courts are working to add new cases and case documents filed while the case management system was offline. Until that work is complete, information in the case management system will be out of date.

Several courts have reported successfully completing this work. To track which courts have finished updating the case management system with paper filings, visit Status of District Court Restoration.
