Justice of the Peace at your Libraries

Man signing papers

Justices of the Peace (JP) can now be found 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 

No appointments are needed but availability is best confirmed by contacting library branches directly. 

When the libraries are fully open, session times are as follows: 

Dandenong Library: Monday to Thursday 10am–3pm and 6pm–8pm 

Springvale Community Hub: Monday to Friday 10am–1pm and 4pm–7pm

COVID-19 restrictions mean that JPs are currently unable to attend to their normal duties but will return as soon as libraries reopen.
