9. Substantive Law

In Kansas, the practice of Family Law is governed by a large body of case law (decided by our Appellate Courts), statutes (created by our Legislature), and Court Rules (promulgated by our Supreme Court). The law governing domestic relations is an ever-changing body of law. Your attorneys should attempt to keep themselves apprised of these changes as they are made. Most attorneys subscribe to many periodicals and services to enable them to do so. Each case is unique (legally, factually, or both), with its own nuances and peculiarities. Rarely are individual cases alike and subject to comparison. Throughout your case, your attorney will discuss with you the law as it specifically impacts upon your case.
