A Justice of the Peace is available in the Hastings Library every Tuesday and Thursday from 2pm - 4 pm. (They do take a break over the Christmas/New Year weeks).
Having a JP helping you is entirely free of charge. Justices are statutory appointees who receive no payment for their services to the community. If you are not sure whether a JP can help you, just ask.
There are Justices of the Peace in all areas of New Zealand. To learn more about their services and find one near you visit the Justices of the Peace website.
Masks are required to be worn in the libraries, except by those who are exempt.
