Justice of the Peace Service

Justice of the Peace services are suspended until further notice.

Liverpool City Libraries are offering limited Justice of the Peace (JP) services due to COVID-19.

No bookings are required to see a JP, but it’s a good idea to call the appropriate library or Court House to check their availability.

JP services are provided by volunteers within the community.

Justices of the Peace are now available at:

Green Valley Library

Monday
5:30pm - 7:30pm

Liverpool City Library

Saturday
10:00am - 12:00pm

Liverpool Court House

Monday - Friday
9:00am - 1:00pm

Alternative JP services may be found at the NSW Justices Association Inc.

To keep everyone safe, library staff are working to the Department of Health’s guidelines. Ensure you maintain social distancing and either frequently wash your hands or sanitise.  Please do not come to the library if you are unwell.

The most common services provided by JPs are:

  • Witnessing the signing of a statutory declaration
    A statutory declaration is a written statement which a person declares to be true in the presence of an authorised witness. Various organisations often require information be provided in a statutory declaration.
  • Witnessing the signing of an affidavit
    An affidavit is a written statement for use as evidence in court proceedings. A person who makes an affidavit must promise that he or she is telling the truth, in the presence of an authorised witness.
  • Certifying that a copy of an original document is a true copy
    Various organisations sometimes accept a certified copy of a document, instead of the original. This avoids a person having to mail or submit the original of a precious document, such as a birth certificate or academic qualification
