From time to time you will need the services of a Justice of the Peace (JP). The role of the JP is to act as an independent and objective witness to documents people use for official or legal purposes. JPs can serve different roles in different jurisdictions. Generally JPs:

  • witness oaths or affidavits
  • take statutory declarations and affirmations
  • witness signatures
  • attest the execution of a document
  • certify a true copy of an original document
