N.C. J.P.

This morning I was officially sworn in as a Justice of the Peace for the state of New South Wales.

The functions of a Justice of the Peace under the Justices of the Peace Act 2002, following the repeal of the Justices Act 1902, are primarily:
  • administering oath declarations or affidavits, and taking statutory declarations and affirmations principally under the Oaths Act 1900;
  • witnessing signatures; and
  • attesting and certifying documents.
