18th Judicial District


Welcome to the 18th Judicial District Court of Kansas in Sedgwick County

Throughout Kansas and here in Sedgwick County, district courts are the front line of the judicial system. District courts are the trial courts of Kansas with the power to preside over all civil and criminal cases, including divorce and domestic relations, damage suits, probate and administration of estates, guardianships, conservatorship cases, care of the mentally ill, juvenile matters, and small claims. It is here that the criminal and civil jury trials are held.

We hope you find your visit here interesting and informative. Below you will find links to the most requested information; you will also find navigation links on the left side of the page.

Our Mission:  To provide courteous and dignified treatment to all citizens, in an environment that always promotes efficient and fair administration of justice.


We have received multiple reports from the general public of fake email from the court. Keys to spotting suspicious email include but not limited to, grammatical errors, spelling errors, threats and asking for any personal information. Also, be wary of any links in the email; hover over the link to see where they go, if anywhere. Clicking on links is a common source of computer infections and malware.
