The court may award a reasonable attorney's fee to the applicant for the services
of the applicant's attorney in obtaining the order to withhold and transmit earnings.
Such fee shall be reasonably related to the time spent by the attorney in obtaining
such order and not to the amounts collected or to be collected pursuant to such order.
If the court awards an attorney's fee, it shall provide that such fee shall be paid
from that portion of the amounts withheld and transmitted to the clerk of the court
which the court designates as the attorney fee award.
