Who Can Witness a Signature?

Answer

A witness is a person who is present at the signing of a legal document. They sign the document to indicate that they personally saw the signing and the document was authentic.

Generally, a witness can be anyone, as long as he/she is a neutral party in the matter the document deals with, and they are of sane mind.
