You can find a Justice of the Peace (JP) using the online Public Register. You can search by postcode, name of a JP, day of availability, language spoken and JP registration number.
The register lists a JP’s location, availability and telephone number. Please note that JPs are volunteers and may not be available at all times.
For help using the JP Public Register, read the guide JP Public Register - Find a JP (PDF, 349.7 KB)
If you have difficulty reading or understanding written English, both you and the JP are required to use an interpreter when you sign a statutory declaration or affidavit. This applies even if the JP speaks your language.
The interpreter should be accredited through the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). For a list of accredited interpreters, please visit www.naati.com.au

Suggested wording for a statutory declaration by an accredited interpreter or by other interpreters can be downloaded from NSW Statutory Declaration Forms.
