KANSAS: Domestic Violence Resources



MY ABUSER HAS A GUN

If you have a current Protection From Abuse Order (PFA) from a court against your abuser, or if your abuser has been convicted of a felony or domestic violence misdemeanor, then Federal law states that it is illegal for your abuser to buy or have a gun in their possession.

You MUST ASK THE JUDGE to specifically write in your order that the abuser cannot buy or have a gun while the order is in effect and to require that your abuser to give any guns to the police, or require the police to go to the abuser's house and get them. The guns then go to either the county sheriff or court clerk of stolen property. The district attorney in the county where the gun(s) was taken away can then file to have them destroyed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the domestic violence agency in your area immediately.


Kansas Unemployment Law Protects Victims of Domestic Violence

Under Chapter 44, Article 7, Kansas statutes provide that victims of domestic violence may collect full benefits if their voluntary leaving was due to domestic violence, reasonable fear of domestic violence, or the need to address the physical, psychological or legal impacts of domestic violence, including the need to receive services or shelter. A restraining order or court action, a police report, medical documentation, or statement from a victim advocate, healthcare worker or other recognized service provider is required. For more information, contact the Kansas Dept. of Labor.
