JUSTICE OF THE PEACE SERVICE
The Pines Elanora provides a Justice of the Peace (JP) service six days a week for our local community.
Located just down the mall near Woolworths, our qualified JPs are available Monday to Saturday from 10am-1pm.
JPs are trained to witness and certify your routine legal documents (for example wills, affidavits, statutory declarations, passport applications etc.)
All of our JPs are volunteers who provide their time to assist the public, this is a FREE community service and no appointment is required.
A JP in Queensland can;
- issue search warrants
