Justice of the Peace

JPs are appointed by the Governor who authorises them to carry out a wide range of official administrative and judicial duties in the community. JPs volunteer their services to provide an integral link in the judicial system.

Administrative tasks include witnessing affidavits, statutory declarations and certifying documents.

When contacting JPs, please note they are volunteers who provide their services to the community free of charge. While JPs make themselves available as much as possible, it should be remembered that JPs have the same type of work and personal commitments as any other person. Accordingly, you will need to negotiate a mutually acceptable time and place for appointment.
