The fastest and easiest way for current JPs to apply for reappointment is using our online application form. The online form can be used by JPs whose terms expire within the next twelve months.
JP reappointments - avoid delays. When reapplying you must disclose ALL convictions & section 10s, regardless of age, even if disclosed before. Read the guidelines on appointment of JPs.
Before the expiry of your current five-year term, the Department will remind you to apply for reappointment.
We contact you by email first, if you have given us an email address. If you have not given us an email address, or you did not respond to our email reminders, we will write to the postal address you have given us.
These reminders may be sent at any time within twelve months of the expiry date of your term.
If we send you a reminder by post, we will enclose a paper application form for you to complete. You still have the option of applying online.
You do not need to do anything. In this case, your appointment will automatically lapse on the expiry date of your current term. Thank you for your service to the community as a JP for NSW.
