May 22, 2020 Important Update

The Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) will open to the public on May 26, 2020. Entry to OAH's physical office will be limited and controlled to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Phones will be answered, and mail will be received daily.

All prehearing conferences and hearings will be held as scheduled unless OAH specifically notifies you that your proceeding has been cancelled or rescheduled.

To ensure access to OAH, filings may be submitted in one of five ways:

  1. E-Filing System. Use the e-filing system if you are already approved to utilize the e-filing system for your appeal. If you are not an approved e-filer, you may access the e-filing system by completing the E-filing Terms of Use Agreement. This Agreement is located at the “Resources” tab on the OAH website. The e-filing system is the most effective way for parties to verify that their filings have been received by OAH and to receive prompt notice of filings and orders in your appeal.
  2. File by email. Use to send filings to OAH. This is a temporary email address to send filings to OAH during the COVID-19 emergency. Do not send questions or general correspondence to this email address as OAH will not respond.
  3. Fax. File by fax at 785-296-4848.
  4. Mail or third-party delivery services. Filings may be sent to OAH through U.S. mail or other letter/parcel delivery services such as FedEx or UPS. OAH’s address is 1020 S. Kansas Avenue, Topeka, KS 66612.
  5. Hand delivery. Filings may be hand delivered to OAH, but entry will be limited and controlled. If you want a “filed” stamp copy, please bring an additional copy of the filing. Once in the building, place your filing in the box located in front of OAH’s door and ring the doorbell. OAH staff will take your filing, stamp it, and place it back in the box for you to take.
