Justices of the Peace

The office of the Justice of the Peace (JP) is a statutory position that involves a range of duties and responsibilities - most commonly including witnessing of documents such as Affidavits, Statutory Declarations, Enduring Powers of Attorney/Guardianship and certifying documents.

At many centres throughout the State - predominantly in regional areas - justices are required to preside in Magistrates Courts. Other administrative duties relate to bail applications and issuing search warrants.

A search facility is provided to assist you to locate the closest JP.
