May 2020 | No. 121,011 (Kan. Ct. App. 2020)

In re Ray (Kansas 2020)

The right to appeal is statutory, and without a basis for the appeal, it will be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. The mother and father filed for divorce. A temporary order set child support. Various proceedings ensued around custody for the child. The mother filed to modify the temporary support order, which was denied, and requested permission to move with the child. The mother appealed this denial as well as the court’s denial of her request to move. The appellate found it had no jurisdiction to review a temporary order. The mother’s notice of appeal indicated she was appealing adverse pre-trial rulings. Kansas statute doesn’t allow for the appeal of an adverse pre-trial ruling.
