There are a lot of things that have been, for example, mandatory unions that have been deducted from our clients’ paycheck daily or every paycheck and they are mandatory. So those things that are mandatory and they are deducted from your paycheck we can include it so you have to pay late child support. There are a lot of obligations as well. Maybe another divorce with alimony or child support that we can include it and get a lower number for you. There are health insurances. There are child care expenses.
