Justices of the Peace

Justices of the Peace carry out many administrative and judicial functions in New Zealand. In particular, they can help you by:

  • certifying copies of documents
  • witnessing signatures
  • taking statutory declarations and affidavits
  • completing many other tasks that require formal signatures or approval. 

Justices of the Peace are volunteers and their services are free.

Also bring both the originals and photocopies of any documents you need to have certified, and any formal documents that you need to sign. Do not sign anything before the appointment. Please note that Justices of the Peace cannot make photocopies for you. Please also check that your document can be actioned by a Justice of the Peace as not everything can.
