A bond is required in every case except in actions instituted on behalf of the state of Kansas or a county of the state. The order of attachment may be issued and executed on Sunday, a legal holiday, or a day on which the office of the clerk of the court is not accessible if the affidavit states that the party seeking the attachment will lose the benefit thereof unless the writ be issued or served on such day. The provisions of this section shall not be applicable to garnishments authorized pursuant to K.S.A. 2017 Supp. 23-2707, and amendments thereto.
