If you are correcting not changing a parent name the parents can appear before a Kansas judge in any courthouse in Kansas and complete a VS211 Paternity Consent for Birth Registration Form (PDF). If the parents do not live in the state of Kansas and are unable to complete the VS211 form they will need to obtain a court order that directs our office to correct the parent(s) name on the child's certificate.
Note: If completing the VS211 form you're not required to have an attorney to appear before the judge and there are no court fees. Contact the clerk of the district court to set up an appointment to use this form. You will need to take a certified copy of the child's birth certificate with you and some form of identification for both parents. Once the form has been completed at the courthouse, the clerk will mail it to our office.
