Kansas Statutes Annotated 23-2509

Forms for licenses, issuance; photocopy to applicant; computer generated licenses

Forms for license shall be furnished by the secretary of health and environment and shall be photocopied and issued with the photocopy to the applicant therefor for delivery to the person who performs the marriage ceremony after the judge or clerk or the district court has recorded the required personal information as provided by K.S.A. 2019 Supp. 23-2505, and amendments thereto, for the original marriage license being issued. Such photocopy shall clearly be marked as "DUPLICATE." The secretary may approve the use of an automated system whereby the marriage license form is computer generated. In such instances, the court shall comply with prescribed specifications as set out by the secretary to ensure uniformity across the state.
