Justice of the Peace Services
The Justices of the Peace (JPs) are volunteers within the community who are able to witness and attest many documents, such as Statutory Declarations and Affidavits. The service is free and it is not necessary to book.
With ongoing COVID-19 NSW State Legislated restrictions and the subsequent temporary closure of Hawkesbury Library Service, a temporary zoom JP service is now being trialled.
Every Tuesday, from 10am to midday, a library volunteer Justice of the Peace will be available to provide a limited Justice of the Peace service via zoom. This service will continue every Tuesday for the duration of the lockdown.
The services that are available via zoom are limited due to restrictions imposed by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice however the JP can continue to witness statutory declarations and affidavits via audio-visual link. The Justice of the Peace is not able to certify documents online.
To book a timeslot with a Justice of the Peace, visit the Hawkesbury Library Eventbrite page http://hawkesburylibrary.eventbrite.com and select a convenient time. Currently appointments are limited to 15 minute blocks but they can be extended if required.
IMPORTANT: Reliable internet connection for your computer and or smartphone is essential to access the service.
Call 4560 4460 for more information.
Alternative JP services may be found via the Department of Justice’s NSW Justices of the Peace Register or via this pdf.
