Justices of the Peace (JPs) are volunteers appointed by the Governor of New South Wales. The primary role of a JP is to witness a person making a statutory declaration or affidavit, and to certify copies of original documents. JPs come from all sections of the community and are available across NSW.
For Information: The law has recently changed to allow NSW JPs to witness the execution of documents to be used interstate. Learn more
