I've been nominated as a witness, now what?

In most cases, a will document isn’t legally binding unless it has been signed in front of one or more witnesses. Usually, the will signing ceremony involves the will-maker signing and dating their document in the presence of two people who have also agreed to be the witnesses. They will then also sign and date the document.
