What is the purpose of an attesting witness affidavit?

The affidavit of the attesting witnesses stating that the Decedent was of sound and disposing of mind, memory, and understanding and was not under any restraint or in any respect incompetent establishes the petitioner's burden of establishing the Decedent's testamentary capacity. See In re Will of Schlaeger, 74 AD3d 405 (1st Dept 2010).
