Voluntary Assisted Dying

The Voluntary Assisted Dying legislation became the first to pass in Australian in November 2017. The law gives anyone suffering a terminal illness, with less than six months to live, the right to end their life. The law had an 18-month implementation period, and came into effect on 19 June 2019.

As the leading independent witnesses in the State, JPs will from time to time be requested to witness the execution of the forms required by the new legislation. The process does not mandate that the witness be a JP, but as you know, the public often rely on us for these sorts of things.
