Customer Question

We are writing a will from an Internet site. But I am confused. Are the two witnesses that sign the will also supposed to sign the self proving affidavit? Or can we have different witnesses who sign the affidavit with the notary.

Doing a will on your own is quite risky because so many mistakes can be made. Also, most internet sites disclaim liability, meaning they would not be responsible if the information they provide you is inaccurate legally. Also, it is always better to have an attorney supervise the execution. In any event, the persons who witness the signing of the will by the testator are the same people who sign the self proving affidavit.
