Please note: Our JP service is subject to volunteer availability. Please call 02 9391 7100 if you would like further information.

Please remember that this service is generously delivered by volunteers and dependent on their availability, so we recommend you contact us before attending to confirm a JP is available as scheduled.

You may need a JP to:

  • administer oaths
  • witness signatures
  • witness affidavits
  • witness statutory declarations
  • certify copies of documents

To maximise your session, please bring any identification, original documents and copies with you. Should you require photocopies or printing, these services are available at our libraries. Please see library staff for assistance.

Council endeavours to provide a free JP service at the Council Chambers Customer Service Centre. This may vary due to availability of staff. If it is urgent, we recommend calling the customer service team to confirm if one is available. The hours of the service are Monday to Friday, 9am-12pm.

Should you require an alternative, you can check the NSW Government Communities & Justice website.

If you are interested in volunteering with us as a JP, please visit our Volunteer page for further information and application form.
