Justice of the Peace Service Desks

Service desk-452*Appointments are not required but please be aware there may be a wait in some of the busier areas.
*Do not sign your documents before coming to see the JP.
*If you have copies to be certified, bring the original document as well.
*You may wish to take your driver licence, 18+ card, passport, or other photo identification if you have it.
*If you need a JP outside of the times listed below you can contact any JP to make a separate appointment.


As soon as Service Desks re-open, we will update the website.  Reopening the Service Desks is a priority, but this is dependent on the venue allowing the service to operate and in a way that everyone's safety can be assured.  Times and days may be different to what was offered pre-lockdown, so please check carefully.

In the meantime, some JPs will be able to see you at their home.  Please enter your town or suburb in the blue search box on the main page of the website and click search.
