You can find a Justice of the Peace (JP) in your area by searching by postcode, suburb or name of a JP.
JPs are volunteers who offer their time freely and may not be available at all times. Note that only the name, suburb and telephone number of JPs are available to members of the public.
The service operates Monday to Friday during business hours at Chesser House Level 2, 91-97 Grenfell Street, Adelaide.
Contact Justice of the Peace Services:
- to ensure a JP is on duty
- to make an appointment if you have more than 10 documents.
Councils often have JPs on their staff. To ensure a JP is available call your local council. If you do not know which Council area you are in:
- visit the Local Government Association of SA website
- click on 'Council Search/List', type the name of your suburb.
Most electorate offices have JPs on staff. Call your electorate office to ensure that a JP is available. To find the address or telephone number of your electorate office go to the members section of the South Australian Parliament website.
Courts have JPs available to provide witnessing services to the public. Please note that court documents receive priority attention by JPs. Find out the address of your local court on the Courts Administration Authority website.
