AUSTRALIAN DOCUMENTS

All Justices are reminded that NZ Justices of the Peace have no jurisdiction to sign Australian documents, especially Statutory Declarations which are declared against an Act of the Federation of Australia.  
There have been recent incidents whereby clients documentation has been returned to the clients for this reason.  
To complete an Australian Statutory Declaration please refer clients to the Auckland JP website (jpauckland.org.nz) where there is a list of Australian Justices who live in Auckland, who are only too happy to sign Australian documentation.
