When an individual, a landlord or tenant, or a business owner wants to safeguard themselves from harm at the hands of another, they often enter into a contract with the other party. The purpose of a contract is to ensure that each party follows the terms set within the contract; but that does not mean that rules will not be broken. When one party violates the terms of a contract, it is known as a "breach of contract" and may be brought before the court for resolution and compensation.
Pleading a Breach of Contract According to the Kansas Statutes
There are certain procedures that must be followed when pleading a breach of contract before the court. This process is outlined in K.S.A. § 60-208, § 60-209 and § 60-210. A Petition for Breach of Contract must be filled out by the plaintiff, and the defendant must provide a defense according to K.S.A. § 60-208.
The plaintiff must be able to present the written instrument (the contract) and argue the meaning of its content. Even the form of pleading must be specifically formatted as explained in K.S.A. § 60-210.
