The list of those able to do this is very similar to that of those that can certify photos for passports.
Justices of the Peace can be found at your local Magistrate court. Pop in make an appointment and turn up and save yourself some money. I would ask around at work first though.
How do you contact the local JPs then???? I blindly called my local magistrates court and hit several brick walls..... not literally of course xx
Django do you know what wording is required on the docs if my OH takes them too work and gets them certified there? x

Reason: added extra question
How bizzare, when Tracey did it for her skill assesment she just phoned up and asked for an appointment to see one to sign certify documents for migration and had no trouble.
Suggested wording for single page is "This is a certified true copy of the original as sighted by me"
Multiple pages "I certify this and the following … pages to be a true copy of the original as sighted by me"
Note: The department of immigration suggests that you initial subsequent pages of the copy.
Just found the list of who Australia except as people able to certify documents...

Can an chartered accountant sign them, he is registered with several bodies, i can see it on the list but it does say something about financial workers

Sorry Lib but yes, you could have got a colleague at work to do the do for you.

After 3 lengthy calls to local magistrates court I finally managed to speak to someone who advised that we could take our documents to them for certification free of charge, this morning at 9.30, we arrived at 9.15 to a queue of undesirables I was eventually spoken to by an office bod after about 20 mins who then informed me that I could indeed have the docs certified at a cost of wait for it........... £25.00 per document I of course nearly fell over, I had 10 docs that needed doing !.
I was then informed ( by stroppy bird behind the office window) that I could take them to the county court where they would do it FREE!. However the nearest one to us was actually about 10 miles away. We got on the road and I tried to call them but was unable to get past the annoying recorded message, so we headed there anyway and located the court but of course nearest legal car parking was 15 mins walk away. We arrived at the court rather stressed and hot to then be sent up to the 5th floor where I joined yet another queue..... after 10 mins arrived at the desk to be told that they don't offer this service unless its for a county court matter AAAAArrrrgggghhhh
we were advised (by mr Happy security man) to go to a solicitors so off we went over the road where' thank the lord, they were extremely helpful and certified my documents in 5 mins for £20 brilliant! Should have gone there first me thinks......
rant over now
ps hope that makes sense x
