Checklist for visiting a JP

  • Phone the Justice of the Peace for an appointment.
  • Explain what you need to be completed – some documents can take more time than you expect.
  • Do not sign any of your documents before you meet the Justice.
  • Bring your own pen (black or blue ink)
  • Take some form of photo identification, in case it is needed.
  • If your documents are from another country, check that a New Zealand Justice of the Peace can complete them for you.

Service Centres

We offer a “drop-in” Justice of the Peace service at 20 convenient centres across the Waikato region.

You can call in to see a Justice without an appointment.

Depending on the number of clients, there may be a short wait.

Service Centres are closed on public holidays.
