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.

Council does have a JP on site in our main office in Berri. We would appreciate a telephone, however, please call us on 8582 1922 to ensure that they are available.
