Justice of the Peace (JP)

A Justice of the Peace (JP) in South Australia is typically someone of good stature in the community who, providing they are satisfied with the capability of the signatory, is authorised to witness and sign:

  • Statutory declarations
  • Affidavits
  • Waiver rights
  • Search warrants
  • Divorce documents

A JP can also certify copies of original documents as well as witness the signing of advanced care directive documents.

JP Services Suspended

In line with Federal Government and State Government recommendations we are working to reduce the risk of exposure to Coronavirus to our community, including our volunteers.

City of Marion’s Justice of the Peace (JP) service has been suspended until further notice.
