The Kansas Open Records Act, KORA was enacted in 1984 and grants the right to inspect and obtain copies of public records created or maintained by public agencies in Kansas. The predecessor to the current Kansas Open Records Act was enacted in 1957. The Kansas Open Meetings Act, KOMA was passed in 1972 and legislates the methods by which public meetings are conducted. KORA exempts many non print records from FOIA requests. Other exemptions include personal records of employees, excluding contracts, salaries, names, and positions and certain medical records. Kansas currently has 105 counties and 628 cities. There are 3 classes of cities in Kansas based on population.

Q: I need to get a copy of my divorce records from Ellis county Kansas records. Who do I contact?
by Vona Shellito
A: There are 2 methods in which that I'm aware of how an individual can obtain their divorce/dissolution of marriage information. If you're looking for the court file of the divorce, case information, not sure what's in it until it is ordered or received, the office of judicial administration allows the public to conduct a 'Kansas District Court Records Search' here https://www.accesskansas.org/countyCourts/. This is an online service that can be utilized from any computer, and now mobile devices. The page mentions the cost being only one dollar per search and one dollar per cases found, relatively inexpensive for an online service. Another way is to request a divorce certificate from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, vital records section here http://www.kdheks.gov/vital/divorce.html, which offers an official document but shows less data than divorce case filings. This search is also relatively inexpensive as it only costs $15. There are guidelines in which to obtain this information, usually it is a privacy laws versus open records laws, but this is not a factor if the record you are trying to obtain is of your own. The Department of Health and Environment does not provide divorce decrees, that has to be obtained form the court. The certificate basically shows names of spouses, date of the divorce and marriage and so forth. The settlement of the divorce would appear in the decree and not the certificate.

Q: Are background checks open public in Kansas? What is in a comprehensive criminal record search?
by istgt
A: Criminal records are considered open public information. The state of Kansas offers web sources that lets you check your own history of arrest and prosecution. The reason for conducting the background check dictates most of what will be available for the public request. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation criminal history record check can be requested at this site http://www.kansas.gov/kbi/criminalhistory/. This is only a criminal and not a full background. If an employer is requesting a full search, this may not be sufficient to satisfy what is required prior to employment. This is a statewide check, criminal reports of incidents, persons in custody and other minor infractions as well as felonies may be obtained by requesting public information from the county sheriffs or local police.
