WHAT LEGAL ISSUES DO KANSAS COURTS DECIDE IN DIVORCE CASES?
Under Kansas law, a district court presiding over a divorce case can, at the case’s conclusion, can enter any or all of the following orders:
(1) An order changing or terminating the parties' marital status by divorce, annulment or separate maintenance;
(2) an order making an equitable division of the parties' property as authorized by article 28 of chapter 23 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto;
(3) an order regarding spousal support as authorized by article 29 of chapter 23 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto;
(4) an order for child support as authorized by article 30 of chapter 23 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto;
(5) an order allocating parental decision-making and entering a parenting plan as authorized by article 32 of chapter 23 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto;
(6) an order changing one or both parties' names as authorized by K.S.A. 2017 Supp. 23-2716, and amendments thereto; and
(7) an order awarding costs and attorneys fees to either party under K.S.A. 2017 Supp. 23-2715, and amendments thereto.
K.S.A. 23-2711. That doesn’t mean that the court must enter those orders. It simply means that these are the topics that can be considered in a divorce case and, as such, careful preparation of a divorce case must address the possibility of these topics.
