The role of a Justice of the Peace (Qualified) and Commissioner for Declarations is an important one. Their services range from witnessing and signing formal documents to hearing certain types of court matters. By performing these services, they allow lawyers and the courts to concentrate on complex legal matters.
The willingness of Stafford’s JPs and CDecs to voluntarily serve our community in such a valuable way is to be commended.
The Queensland Justices Association (QJA), established in 1918, is the largest organisation supporting Honorary Justices in Australia, with over 6,000 members and 40 Branches throughout the state.
To stay up to date, Stafford’s JPs and CDecs are encouraged to attend the annual QJA conference at USC Sippy Downs on 26th October.
This year’s conference is themed ‘21st Century JPs: family l technology l society’ and considers how digital documents, biometric signatures, and selfies on an ID cards are transforming the way information is assessed.
