hi all i would just like to thank debbie and everyone on this forum for the valuable information offered . i had my interview with the field examiner about two weeks ago. all went well. i just received a letter yesterday saying i was appointed my mom's fiduciary. i had concerns about this because i had filed bankruptcy 10 years ago but he checked my credit report and all was well. i was honest and upfront about this. i know there had been other questions on this forum about bankruptcy...so i hope this helps. the field examiner was very nice and was willing to help me in any way. it only took four months from the time my mom was awarded A&A until the fiduciary meeting. i filled out all necessary paperwork and now i must set up the special checking account for my mom and send a voided check back to va. again....thanks to debbie and everyone who helped me get through this process...and for those still waiting for the fiduciary appointment...hang in there, it is worth it for your loved ones.
