I am in need of the proper paperwork to file in my district…

Customer Question
I am in need...

I am in need of the proper paperwork to file in my district court a lawsuit against the State of Kansas, Department of Labor

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Kansas

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Full time, but that has nothing to do with it, I am suing them for the several state refunds that are being kept after the overpayment has already been paid back, and they still say I owe them and threatens that they can come take my vehicle or personal items.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes, that this has been a problem for me since 2001, it was paid back fully in 2010 and I'm still dealing with this

There is no set form or paperwork for this type of a lawsuit since it is not cookie cutter like a divorce proceeding. Lawyers have to custom draft a lawsuit of this type. It is called a declaratory judgment action where you seek a legal determination from the court that you do not owe them any money and ask for a court judgment against the State ordering it to refund monies wrongfully kept.

See this law for further assistance.

Here is a sample DJ petition to use as a go-by template.
