2012 Statute


59-3072.Transfer of venue. (a) At any time after the trial and appointment of a guardian or conservator as provided for in K.S.A. 59-3067, and amendments thereto, and upon the written request of the guardian or conservator, or upon the court's own motion, and after notice to any persons as the court may direct, the court may transfer venue to another district court for good cause shown. In such case, the transferring court shall transmit to the court to which venue is being transferred a certified copy of all pleadings and orders in the case.

(b) Any district court to which venue is transferred shall proceed in the case as if the petition and all proceedings to that point had originally been filed or occurred therein. In the event that, due to the transfer of venue, notice of a change of location of a hearing previously scheduled is required, but cannot be served on any interested party at least 48 hours prior to the hearing, or if any hearing previously scheduled by the transferring court cannot be held as scheduled by the receiving court because of scheduling conflicts, then the receiving court may continue the hearing for up to seven full working days to allow adequate time for notice to be given and the hearing to be held.
