My Father's World has always appreciated the efforts of the Home School Legal Defense Association to preserve and advance the educational freedom we have as homeschoolers. HSLDA works on behalf of homeschoolers to protect our ongoing freedom to educate our children at home by monitoring laws introduced by state and federal legislators. They defend our rights in court when litigation is necessary. Their staff writes letters on our behalf when school administrators, law enforcement agencies, or government officials try to unlawfully limit our homeschooling activities. Additionally, they monitor the United Nations to assure that our parental rights are not restricted. For all of this we are eternally grateful. A great debt is owed to HSLDA for the freedom we all enjoy. MFW encourages every family to join HSLDA!

About the HSLDA

For more than 20 years, HSLDA has been an advocate for family and homeschool freedom. My Father's World has always appreciated the work of the Home School Legal Defense Association to preserve and expand the rights of parents that chose the best educational option of homeschooling.

Since 1983, Home School Legal Defense Association's primary goal has remained the same – to bring together a large number of homeschooling families so that each can have a low-cost method of obtaining quality legal defense. HSLDA gives families the freedom to homeschool without having to face legal threats alone. Through many families sticking together, HSLDA has been able to keep the cost of a year's membership close to the rate you would have to pay for an hour of an attorney's time almost anywhere else.

After a family joins HSLDA, there are no further charges of any kind for defense in court. HSLDA pays in full all attorney fees, expert witness costs, travel expenses, and all other court costs permissible by state law for HSLDA to pay.

The majority of homeschool related legal issues faced by member families are successfully resolved through HSLDA's early intervention without any court action. Many times HSLDA attorneys call or write letters on behalf of members contacted by local officials. For those who wind up in court, HSLDA provides full representation at every stage of legal proceedings.
