I had signed as witness to a will of my friend, who expired recently. His legal heirs have approached the court and I have been summoned as a witness. Really I do not know the contents of the will, but has seen my friend affixing his signature. Please advise what is my role?
The witness need not know the contents of the will. There is no need him to read the text of any document. A witness only witnesses that the parties to the document have signed the documents in his presence. In the court you may have to testify this fact.
