Who should register
Self-represented parties file paper documents, so they should not register.
Kansas eFiling Rules require Kansas-licensed attorneys permitted to practice law under Supreme Court Rule 206 must electronically file documents in state courts.
Nonlawyer external justice partners
Supreme Court Rule 122A permits certain nonlawyer, external justice partners to electronically file documents.
Electronic filing by certain nonlawyer, external justice partners is required if the court is on the Kansas eCourt case management system. If the court is not operating on the Kansas eCourt case management system, electronic filing is possible but not required.
Currently, only Johnson County District Court does not operate on the Kansas eCourt case management system.
If you are eligible to efile under one of the following categories, request a Kansas Court eFiling account using the Rule 122A Request Form:
individual or group employed by a government entity
individual or group employed by a government contractor
individual or group employed by a government grantee
individual performing services on behalf of a district court
a program appointed by a district court to assist with cases
