Court records of all types, dating back to before Kansas became a state, are located in this office.
The Marshall County District Court is excited to announce the implementation of Electronic Filing effective March 1,2016.
The Kansas Courts e-Filing initiative will move all Kansas state courts from a paper-based system to one that relies on electronic documents. The rollout statewide is planned to be completed by April 2016. At that time all Kansas district and appellate courts will be able to receive and store electronic documents, saving paper, space, time, and money.
Right now, only lawyers in good standing who are licensed in Kansas may use Kansas Courts e-Filing. It is a goal to eventually open e-filing to self-represented litigants.
Why file electronically?
Electronic filing holds great promise for saving courts time, resources, and storage space. When e-filing is in place statewide, and it is used in combination with case and document management systems, judges, court clerks, and lawyers will be able to access electronic court case files at any time.
There also are many benefits specific to e-filers:
· You can file your document without leaving your office.
· You can copy information from an earlier filing to create a new filing on the same case, reducing data entry.
· On a case-by-case basis, you can specify who in your office can see your filings.
· Once you register, you may electronically file in any court where e-filing is used.
· You will spend less on postage, photocopying, and delivery fees.
All the above information has come from the Kansas Judicial Branch website, which can be found at www.kscourts.org.
We are proud to announce that the22nd Judicial District, which includes Marshall, Nemaha, Brown, and Doniphan counties, started e-Filing on March 1, 2016,
