The Justice of the Peace (JP) Service Desk at Mount Sheridan Plaza is located near Coles at the North Western Entrance and is open (excluding Public Holidays) on:

  • Mondays: 10:00am-2:00pm
  • Wednesdays: 10:00am-2:00pm
  • Saturdays: 9:00am-1:00pm

A JP can:

  • witness documents
  • witness statutory declarations
  • witness affidavits
  • witness and administer oaths and affirmations
  • certify a true copy of an original document.

What a JP expects of you:

  • understand the content of the form you are asking them to witness, and its consequences
  • bring all required identification and supporting documents
  • be patient—JPs are volunteers giving their time to assist you
  • respect the time they spend assisting you.

If you need a signature witnessed, do not bring pre-signed documents. The JP needs to see the signing take place.

A JP will not witness a blank document.
