How do I find a JP?
Thousands of volunteer Justices of the Peace (JPs) and Commissioner for Declarations (C.Decs) make themselves available at a number of locations across Queensland.
They can be found in Shopping Centres, Libraries, and Courthouses, and this Menu selection can assist in finding a suitable location close to you.
Volunteer JPs and C.Decs can be found in your local suburb by referring to the Search for a JP Menu.
Use the Local Courts Menu item to list the location and contact details for all courts across Queensland. We suggest you then contact your local court to determine whether they have JPs available and during what hours.
If you are still unsuccessful in finding a JP or C.Dec then contact the Department of Justice, JP Branch on 1300 301 147.
If you are interested in becoming a JP or C.Dec then let us help you. As a Registered Training Organisation we provide the accredited training to become a JP or C.Dec. For more information refer to our Become a JP Introduction or contact our Training Coordinator.
The QJA coordinates a number of signing facilities in a range of shopping centers around Queensland, if you are a JP or C.Dec and would like to participate in the volunteer programme please contact our State Office. Details on the Contact Us page of this website.
