The Justice of the Peace (JP) Service Desk at Mount Sheridan Plaza is located the western entrance near Coles, and is open:

  • Mondays: 10:00am-2:00pm
  • Wednesdays: 10:00am-2:00pm

The JP Desk is CLOSED on Public Holidays.

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 witness the signing.

A JP will NOT witness a blank document.
