Lien Laws.Judgments of courts of record of Kansas, and of courts of the United States rendered within this state, are liens on the real estate of the debtor within the county and from the first day of the term at which the judgment is rendered, but judgments by confession, and judgments rendered at the same term which the action is commenced, bind such lands only from the day on which the judgment is rendered. An attested copy of the journal entry of any judgment, together with a statement of the costs taxed against the debtor in the case, may be filed in the office of the clerk of the district court of any county, and such judgment is a lien on the real estate of the debtor within that county from the time of filing such copy. Executions are issued only from the court in which the judgment is rendered.
