Justice of the Peace

The role of the Justice of the Peace (JP) is to act as an independent and objective witness to documents people use for official or legal purposes. JPs can serve different roles in different jurisdictions.

Generally JPs:

  • witness oaths or affidavits
  • take statutory declarations and affirmations
  • witness signatures
  • attest the execution of a document
  • certify a true copy of an original document

The MNC Library Service currently offers free Justice of the Peace services at Port Macquarie library. Services at Laurieton & Wauchope will be available soon.
