Does the witness have to sign the documents in front of a notary or can it be done before notarization?
by National Gun Trusts
When you have your gun trust, amendment, assignment sheet, etc notarized, you will need to also have a witness. The witness can't complete their section of the gun trust unless they are in the presence of the notary. This means that the witness will need to be present with you at the time of notarization with the notary.
