All Justices of the Peace perform Ministerial Duties, but only some will carry out Judicial Duties.

Ministerial duties include:

  • Witnessing documents
  • Certifying copies
  • Taking declarations, affidavits or affirmations

Judicial Duties include:

  • Hearing summary offences
  • Conducting traffic courts
  • Hearing bail applications and requests for remands and adjournments
  • Issuing search warrants

There are additional duties under each of these categories - the above are examples only. A number of Justices of the Peace also act as Visiting Justices to Corrections facilities and others serve as youth support people in the Youth Court.

The services of a JP in New Zealand are provided as a free service to the public and without remuneration. Your local JP is happy to be of service. It has now become a requirement to make an appointment at a convenient time to both parties.
