During COVID Lockdowns – Document Signing Stations are closed and many individual JPs are not active, in line with Department of Health guidelines. Please take this into consideration when contacting JPs, as they may not be available due to health considerations.
Many honorary justices (JP’s & BJ’s) who are volunteers are available at Document Signing Stations (DSS) where no appointment is required for processing a reasonable number of documents. If you have a large number of documents requiring attention, then organizing an appointment with an individual JP is highly recommended.
Please be considerate of the times you call or make contact, we recommend best after 8.30am and before 5.30pm on weekdays.
