Justice of the Peace
A Justice of the Peace (JP) is a volunteer judicial officer who is able to:
- witness the signing of documents, such as affidavits and statutory declarations
- certify copies of documents.
Some of these documents may be required in court proceedings, while others may be needed for people to access benefits, or meet legal responsibilities.
Community members who require the assistance of a JP can access this service for free in Hurstville City Council's Customer Service Centre every Wednesday, between 12.00pm and 1.00pm subject to availability. Please note the JP providing the service is a volunteer, and is not employed by Council.
No demanding, offensive or aggressive behaviour towards the JP will be tolerated, for any reason.
At some times, the service may not be available due to the absence of the Justice of the Peace

Keystone Community Solutions also provides JP services at its Information Desk in Westfield - Hurstville, which is located to the left of Coles Supermarket. This service is generally available on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 1.30pm until 3.00pm, but is also subject to availability.
