Before beginning this post, I would like to send out a prayer to the individuals involved in an incident witnessed on the way to this assignment yesterday. I’m unsure of the condition of the severely injured party involved. Please, loved ones and friends, buckle up, make sure your children are properly buckled and LOOK TWICE. It’s important.
On the afternoon of Thursday, April 28, 2016, I attended the signing of three copies of Revocation and Durable Power of Attorney documents. Thanks to a relative of the signing party for bringing two, separate witnesses unrelated to the transaction involved.
In the case that you are unable to secure witnesses for a document that MUST be witnessed in the State of South Carolina, the ‘accost and ask’ method is the next option, however, to avoid the ‘accost and ask’ from occurring, it’s a good thing to secure your witnesses beforehand.
