Clarification on notarizing a document

My wife and me need to issue a Power of Attorney. I understand that we will need to sign the document in the notary's presence, but what about the witnesses? Will they need to be carted along as well?
Also how much is this likely to cost ( in Romandie )?
Any watchouts?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Clarification on notarizing a document

Normally no witnesses (we've never needed them), and my wife often writes me a POA to deal with certain matters on her behalf.

Costs CHF 20 at the commune, 30 at the lawyer.

If you need an apostilla, that's another CHF 20 at an office in the cantonal capitol.

Thanks, Tom. I was given a format that had witnesses - you are right, there is no legal requirement to have witnesses.
