I'm in the midst of gathering documents for my Dad's application for A&A. I've seen mentioned in the threads that VA sometimes loses documents. I just paid $27 for a marriage certificate and on viewing, it is the same as the unofficial copy I had found late last year. Death certs also cost money. Will VA accept replacement copies of documents that they 'Lose"? Or will I have to put out more money to get the replacements certified as well? Thanks. I have learned so much here in the past few days.
