The RVAHJ is made up of volunteers called collectively Honorary Justices that include justices of the peace and bail justices. Justices of the peace provide document witnessing and certification services to the community both during and outside business hours. Bail justices primarily work outside business hours and on weekends to conduct hearings in relation to applications for bail or remand, and applications for interim accommodation orders relating to children.

RVAHJ has always provided the voice for BJ’s and JP’s to support the community within Victoria. In doing so it has kept members updated of any changes for Honorary Justice’s duties as well as providing training and support. All RVAHJ branches provide a non- threatening and supportive role to members, an opportunity to discuss experiences. Our popular Custodes magazine and E News continues to deliver excellent and immediate information and I can only recommend highly to all of the ongoing support the RVAHJ provides to its Members.
I have been with the RVAHJ for over 25 years as the admin officer and the main point of contact for members, as well as being a JP during this time. When I speak to members about any questions they may have, I am able to provide practical answers based on my own experience as a JP. The RVAHJ provides for members the benefit and comfort of knowing that should they be confronted with an unusual matter then the RVAHJ is just a phone call away ready to assist with answers.
The RVAHJ, for over 100 years has and continues to offer great ongoing support to all Honorary Justices, particularly in providing guidance to sorting out difficult procedural issues, ongoing education, support and is always ready and able to defend the position and rights of its members.
