61-3006. Service of process outside the state. (a) (1) Service of process may be made upon any party outside the state. If upon a person domiciled in this state or upon a person who has submitted to the jurisdiction of the courts of this state, it shall have the force and effect of service of process within this state; otherwise it shall have the force and effect of service by publication.

(2) The service of process shall be made in the same manner as service within this state, by any officer authorized to make service of process in this state or in the state where the defendant is served. No order of a court is required. An affidavit, or any other competent proofs, of the server shall be filed stating the time, manner and place of service. The court may consider the affidavit, or any other competent proofs, in determining whether service has been properly made.

(3) The time stated in the summons requiring the defendant to appear in response to the petition shall be determined by the court. Such time shall be not less than 14 nor more than 50 days after the date the summons is issued, except as provided in subsection (a)(3) of K.S.A. 60-308, and amendments thereto.

(b) The provisions of subsection (b) of K.S.A. 60-308, and amendments thereto, shall be used to determine whether a person has submitted to the jurisdiction of this state.

(c) Service of process upon any person who is subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of this state, as provided in subsection (b), may be made by serving the process upon the defendant outside this state, as provided in subsection (a)(2), with the same force and effect as though process had been served within this state, but only causes of action arising from acts enumerated in subsection (b) may be asserted against a defendant in an action in which jurisdiction over the defendant is based upon this subsection.

(d) Nothing contained in this section limits or affects the right to serve any process in any other manner provided by law.
