    When the court is petitioned for a name change, the court record of that name change can be found similar to other court files. Name change due to marriage is different. Another challenge is knowing where the petition was filed. Name changes are also published for a specific time period as per state law which you can find easily. Without knowing the circumstances of a particular name change, answers and tips about this subject will also be general.

    This is an instance where the private sites will provide the information openly about what's up for sale in an area. You can do this search without having to request public records.

    Arrest reports, not to be confused with criminal background checks, are requested from individual police departments. Police reports are official documents written by individual officers/agencies which made the arrest, while background checks are the criminal history of an individual. Police departments can offer both individual arrest reports as well as background checks. The policy requirements for arrest reports are different as they are for background checks, although both are considered public records. Policy regarding official copies can also vary from one department to another. The Kansas state police does not provide the public arrest reports of all local agencies. Criminal history checks can be requested from the Kansas Bureau of Criminal Investigation online. For the policy of individual departments, look for the records department's webpage and instructions with forms are often provided.

  • Question: Are background checks open public in Kansas? What is in a comprehensive criminal record search?

    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. 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.
