Key info

  • A Justice of the Peace (JP) can act as an independent and objective witness to documents that are used for official or legal purposes.
  • A JP can witness signatures, certify a true copy of an original document, witness a statutory declaration, certify a person's identity or witness an affidavit for use in court.
  • It's a good idea to review the signing page of your document to check what service you need. For example, if your document needs you to 'declare', a Commissioners for Declarations can sign your document unless there are instructions requiring a JP.
