      Form 888 witness/certify question

      My australian g/f is getting friends and family back home to complete some form 888 statutory declarations.

      My question is - can the person who witnesses the stat dec (for example a JP or a solicitor) also be the same person who certifies the copy of their passport/birth certificate.

      Thanks to anyone who can help!

      Hi JoeBloggs,

      I did a stat dec & had docs certified - and all by the same solicitor.

      Cheers

      Nice one - thanks! And should they expect to pay anything to have it witnessed/certified? I've read some solicitors charge but it shouldn't be more than 5 - 10 dollars right?

      There is no problem with them witnessing all the documents. It is up to the lawyer as to what they charge I think.

      Mine charged about 5 for the stat dec and 3 each for the doc certification. Don't think there is set fee - I phoned a couple of places in the UK and asked how much they charged before I decided where to go.
