Customer Question

We are making a new will with an internet source. I am confused. Are the two witnesses that sign the will supposed to also sign as the witness on the self proving affidavit? Or are you supposed to have two different witnesses that the notary witnesses on the affidavit?

Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you. I've been doing estate planning, including drafting wills, now for 35 years in Texas.

There need not be two additional witnesses. You simply need the two witnesses and then the notary notarizes the signatures of the testator and the two witnesses. There is no need for 4 witnesses. :)
