Justice of the Peace Service
Council offers a limited Justice of the Peace (JP) service weekdays between 9.00am-4.00pm where customers may have their documents witnessed and certified.
While this is not a typical Council service, some Council staff members volunteer their services to the community. Please be mindful that the service maybe unavailable due to sickness or holiday periods. To avoid disappointment, please contact us on 9710 0333 to confirm a JP will be on duty prior to your visit.
Our JP service is limited to a maximum of 15 sheets that can be certified or witnessed (per customer, per day). Customers must supply both the original document(s) and copies required to be certified. Alternatively, a public photocopier is available in the foyer area to produce copies (20 cents for A4 and 30 cents for A3).
Please note: Overseas pensions cannot be certified by a Justice of the Peace. You will require a Public Notary Officer to do this. The website www.notarynsw.org.au provides a list of Officers in your area that can provide this service.
