However, this section is not to be interpreted to exclude a petition for extraordinary attorney's fees, properly filed, and if approved by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, does not necessitate a hearing before the court for approval, but the court shall enter its order for withdrawal of said attorney's fees from the ward's guardianship account accordingly.
