How much does it cost to visit a Justice of the Peace?

Justice of the Peace Services are free.  JP's are not paid and are volunteers.


Can I bring my wife's passport to be certified?

Yes, if it is only for a certified copy.  If it is required to prove the person's identity then they must present their documents in person.


Do I have to make an appointment?

Please phone individual JPs to make an appointment.  There is no appointment required for Service Desks.


Can I have my document certified via video link?

Please discuss this with the Justice of the Peace.


Can a Justice of the Peace sign my document?

Please check that with the agency RECEIVING the document.  If it is an overseas document, a New Zealand Justice of the Peace may not be the best person to witness it.
