Justices of the Peace

The office of the justice of the peace is a statutory position that involves a range of duties and responsibilities - most commonly including witnessing of documents such as Affidavits, Statutory Declarations, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Wills.

At many centres throughout the State - predominantly in regional areas - justices are required to preside in Magistrates Courts. Other judicial duties relate to bail applications, complaints, summonses, warrants and search warrants.
