Attorney's Fees Affidavit

In light of some recent developments in Mississippi caselaw, I have had to redo my affidavits of attorney's fees.   I previously discussed here  that the court is required to make certain factual findings on the record.  Several cases have recently come out which seem to suggest that you need to portion up what part of your fee is done for what purpose.  I am attaching a form here that I hope will help some of my fellow attorney's and help make a better record on appeal.  You may want to make a separate affidavit for each portion of a case you work on (i.e. divorce, defending abuse allegations, contempt issues). 

Hope this form helps.
