Office of Judicial Administration (OJA), Clerks of the District Court, and District Court Trustees
The Office of Judicial Administration performs administrative functions for the judicial branch of government in Kansas. In cooperation with the DCF Child Support Services program, the Office of Judicial Administration oversees operations at the Kansas Payment Center.
You may view information about the Office of Judicial Administration and the Kansas court system on the Kansas Judicial Branch web site by clicking http://www.kscourts.org/programs/. At that web site, you may view information about contacting a local Clerk of the District Court by clicking "District Court Directory" under "Quick Links A to Z."
There is a Clerk of the District Court for each county courthouse in Kansas. The Clerk of Court collects information about new orders, which the KPC depends on for its new cases. That is why it is important for your attorney to give the Clerk a completed KPC Worksheet as soon as possible when you get a support order or the order changes. (If your order is established or modified by the DCF Child Support Services Program, CSS staff takes care of this step for you.) Click here if you need a blank KPC Worksheet—your attorney needs to fill out and file the form with the Clerk of Court.
In many places, a District Court Trustee enforces support orders issued in that county or multi-county district. If you need information about whether there is a Court Trustee for your Kansas county, or information about how to contact a Court Trustee, you may contact the Clerk of the District Court by clicking http://www.kscourts.org/programs/ and then click "District Court Directory" under "Quick Links A to Z."
