Justices of the Peace

Justices of the Peace (JPs) are available at both the Dandenong Library and Springvale Community Hub. 

The service is free and staffed by volunteers. JPs can assist residents with the following:

  • Attesting the execution of a document.
  • Witnessing a statutory declaration.
  • Witnessing an affidavit for use in court.
  • Certifying true copies of an original document.
  • Certifying a person’s identity.

JP availability

JPs are volunteers and there may be times when they are not available as scheduled or hours may be affected by public holidays.

No appointments are needed but availability is best confirmed by phoning 1300 630 920 before you visit the library.
