Valentine’s Day is coming up, and you might be thinking of changing the status of your relationship. Well, the Wheat Law Library is here to help! Whether you are looking to get married or divorced, we have all of the information you need! Not to mention the forms you need to file.
For information on the Web, the Kansas Bar breaks things down nicely. It explains requirements for both marriage and divorce.
Both marriages and divorces are filed with the district court. Although what is required for a marriage doesn’t change all that much from one county to another, you will want to check your county when filing for divorce. Douglas County, for example, has a page for getting married as well as a page for getting divorced.
And, of course, we have tons of resources here at the Wheat Law Library!
- The Martindale Hubbell Law Digest contains a brief synopsis of the requirements for marriage and divorce, not only in Kansas but also in the other 49 states.
- Practitioner’s Guide to Family Law is a source put out by the Kansas Bar Association. It contains all of the information you need for marriage and virtually every form you would need to file for divorce.
- Kansas Law and Practice: Kansas Family Law is another great series that breaks down the law of marriage and divorce and provides some forms.
These are just a few! We have many more for your legal enjoyment.
So Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at the Wheat Law Library!
