The Auckland Justices of the Peace Association is affiliated to the Royal Federation of New Zealand Justices’ Association, and is one of 28 JP associations throughout New Zealand. This site offers information to both Justices of the Peace and to other interested people and organizations.

The services of a Justice of the Peace in New Zealand are provided free to the public and without remuneration to any JP. Local JPs in your neighbourhood are happy to be of service in their free time and the courtesy of making an appointment before visiting a JP is always appreciated.
