(2) An owner of or an interest holder in the property may elect to file a claim within 60 days after the effective date of the notice of pending forfeiture or a petition for recognition of exemption with the plaintiff's attorney within 60 days after the effective date of the notice, but no petition may be filed after a court action has been commenced by the seizing agency. The claim or petition shall substantially comply with the requirements for claims in K.S.A.60-4111, and amendments thereto. The effective date of a notice of pending forfeiture shall be as provided for in K.S.A.60-4109, and amendments thereto.

(2) An owner of or interest holder in any property declared nonexempt may file a claim as described in K.S.A.60-4111, and amendments thereto, within 60 days after the effective date of the notice of the recognition of exemption and statement of nonexempt interests.
(3) The plaintiff's attorney may elect to proceed as provided herein for judicial forfeiture at any time.
(4) If no petitioning party files a proper claim within 60 days after the effective date of notice of the recognition of exemption and statement of nonexempt interests, the recognition of exemption and statement of nonexempt interests becomes final, and the plaintiff's attorney shall proceed as provided in K.S.A.60-4116and60-4117, and amendments thereto.
(5) If a judicial proceeding follows a notice of pending forfeiture making an opportunity to file a petition for recognition of exemption available:

(B) The proposed recognition of exemption and statement of nonexempt interests responsive to all petitioning parties who subsequently filed claims are void and will be regarded as rejected offers to compromise.
(c) If no proper petition for recognition of exemption or proper claim is timely filed, the plaintiff's attorney shall proceed as provided in K.S.A.60-4116and60-4117, and amendments thereto.
