Who Can Witness My Signing Of An Advance Directive?

The person who you appoint to be your health care agent or as your conservator cannot be a witness to your signature of the appointment form. In general, it is a good idea not to have the person you name as your attorney­in­fact as a witness. Otherwise, except in a few unique situations, Connecticut law does not state who may or may not be a witness to your advance directive.
