Limited representation 

You can hire a lawyer to advise you, or to complete only some parts of your case, based on what you can afford to pay. Hiring a lawyer to provide limited help while you represent yourself helps ensure your rights are protected and that you know what to do at different stages of your case.

Access to Justice Advice Line

  • The Access to Justice Advice Line is open to Kansas residents who need help with civil or domestic legal matters and are referred to the hotline by court staff.

​Judges' authority to restrict court filings 

Litigants have a right to access the courts, but this right is neither absolute nor unconditional. The Kansas Supreme Court's Access to Justice Committee summarized caselaw and statutes that may be imposed to restrict filings by litigants who repeatedly file frivolous, malicious, or duplicative pleadings. This summary of authorities does not constitute a rule or order of the court.
