How To Access Kansas Divorce Records
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment maintains and issues certified copies of certificates from statewide divorces granted from July, 1951 to the present. Certificate copies of Kansas divorce records are also available from the county district courts. A Kansas divorce certificate includes the names of both parties, plus the dates of the marriage and dissolution of that marriage.

Divorce Records And Kansas Law
As Kansas is a “Closed Records” state, divorce records are considered confidential information. While some American states with laws preventing divorce records to be accessible by the public do have informational as well as certified copies of dissolution of marriage documents available for issue, Kansas does not. Informational divorce record copies are not printed on official paper and not able to be used legally such as proof of dissolution of marriage.
Certified Kansas divorce records are usually accepted for use as legal proof of divorces or for identification for government benefits. By state law, the small search fee covers a 5 year range. In other words, when you are ordering a Kansas divorce record and do not know the exact date of the dissolution of marriage, you may use a 5 year range.
