Need a Justice of the Peace? Here’s where to go.
A Justice of the Peace is a member of your community authorised to witness signatures on legal documents, swearing/affirming Statutory Declarations and Affidavits, authorizing copies of documents, and witnessing/attesting documents such as wills, application for visas, marriages, and divorces, etc.
One way to find a JP is to go to a Document Signing Station. These are set up in public spaces such as libraries, community centres, Neighbourhood Centres and Police Stations. Call the Department of Justice and Community Safety on (03) 8684 0000 or go to http://www.justice.vic.gov.au to locate your nearest JP.
There is a DSS operating from the Boroondara Police Station at 34 Harp Road, East Kew. We are in attendance: Mondays and Wednesdays 11am-1pm; Thursdays 5pm-7pm except for Public Holidays and periods of lockdown. No appointment is necessary.
