Two witnesses are required. A witness cannot be an advocate listed on the form. It can be challenged as not being valid.

The directions call for two signatures or a notary. It is always best to get two signatures. Someone could choose to honor the document whether it complies with this or not.

The statue requires 2 witnesses. Whether someone pays attention to that is another issue.
