How do I know what my court date is?

Search for court hearings occurring within the next six months.

You can also contact the District Court Clerk’s Office at 785-832-5256; press 1, then listen to the instructions to reach the deputy clerk who handles that case type.  Please leave a message if you reach our voice mail; we will return your call. The Court Clerk’s Office is open Monday-Friday, 8:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:30.

You may also email the District Court Clerk’s Office at criminal@douglascountyks.org or civil@douglascountyks.org

If a traffic ticket indicates a total amount due, and if payment is made by the hearing date, your appearance at the court date isn’t required.

Attorneys can access the entire appearance docket via the internet by paying an annual fee.
