WHY TWO WITHNESSES REQUIRED IN WILL:

Updated: Apr 8, 2023


The presence and signatures of witnesses show the intention of the testator. The purpose of having the witnesses in the will is to ensure that the testator has the mental capacity and full intention to make a will. It is very much necessary that both the witnesses, as well as the testator, put their signatures at the same time and in the presence of each other. One should also keep in mind that the witnesses should survive after the demise of the testator, as they may need to testify their will after the demise of the testator.

Witnesses are those people who have seen making the will by the testator and can testify to its authenticity. That can also state that the testator was of sound mind while making the will and are fully aware of the contents of the will and the will was made and executed out of a free choice of the testator. Witnesses may also be called to testify about the contents of the will if in the future the will is contested.
