Your posting is a bit confusing. Do you mean, bills of the protectee (person who is having their affairs handled by an appointed Attorney)? If so, those bills remain the obligation of the protectee, and a change of attorney would not extinguish those bills. Bills of the protectee can only be collected from funds of the protectee. Absent some misdealing, the appointed attorney would not be personally liable for any of those bills. I fope this ansered your question(s). If not, perhaps you could repost with a better explanation of what you want to know.

Good luck
