Atchison Municipal Court provides the residents and businesses of Atchison with professional and effective resolution of all matters within its jurisdiction. The court's jurisdiction covers violations of City ordinances including traffic cases, property violations, fire code violations, and other misdemeanor criminal matters.


Municipal Court vs. District Court

Municipal Court is the judicial arm of the City of Atchison. Municipal court is different than district court, which is the judicial arm of the state of Kansas and covers violations of State statutes and County ordinances as well as more grave violations of the law, including felonies. To avoid confusion or serious error, be mindful of which court your violations are being decided in.


Your Court Date

So, you've been ordered to appear in court ... Many people feel anxious about having to come to court. We understand that regardless of the outcome, nobody looks forward to appearing in court.

Nonetheless, court is about handling your business no matter how you came to be involved in a pending case. To that end, our goal is to provide you with an efficient and professional court experience. Regardless of the outcome, the process should make sense to you.

Your Right to an Attorney

This is important: If the City is requesting jail time, you should be prepared to decide whether or not you wish to proceed with or without an attorney.

For those who wish to proceed with an attorney but cannot afford one, the City will appoint one to represent you. Income guidelines apply. If found guilty, you will be required to repay the cost of the attorney which has been provided to you at a reduced rate.

If you have any questions regarding your case, contact the Municipal Court Clerk at 913-367-5515.
