JP RESPONSIBILITIES

It is not the responsibility of the Justice to send, confirm or do anything with documentation other than send it to the client. You do not have to post originals, fill out any forms for third parties and in fact, you should be destroying the documents you are holding for a client as soon as the client/JP transaction is complete. This includes removing the email from your computers if the transaction was completed electronically. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure the agency for whom they are providing the documentation will accept documents which have been processed electronically. JPs are busy enough during this period without taking on additional work on behalf of the client and agencies. So, the question that should be asked of all clients prior to administering his/her documents is “Will the agency who requests this documentation accept electronic certification?”   If not, the client should be directed to a letterbox drop in his/her location.
