You need to submit the original Will through your lawyer to the Singapore Probate Registry for verification when applying for the Grant of Probate. The Will must be signed by the deceased person in the presence of 2 witnesses. If the will is prepared by law firm, then the 2 witnesses will usually be coming from the law firm.
