In many cases of marital separation, child support is legally guaranteed, and this case is no exception. However, one Texas parent threatened to remove child support simply because their daughter is home schooled and, because she has learning disabilities, she may need to be home schooled beyond 18 years of age.
Fortunately, THSC was able to contact the court on behalf of the home schooled child and her custodial parent and explain that because home schools are considered to be private schools under Texas law, and because child support legally may continue until age 21, the child support should be required to continue.
THSC fights daily to defend home schooling in Texas on all issues. From CPS, to public schools, to child support, THSC’s mission is keeping Texas families free in all areas of the law. THSC endeavors to ensure that parents maintain the fundamental, constitutional right to direct the care, control, and upbringing of their children.
