If your family needs immediate assistance, we suggest that you expedite your membership application with the $40 rush fee. You will receive an initial contact about your legal situation within 1 business day. Because processing a rush application requires the immediate diversion of HSLDA resources, the $40 fee is nonrefundable. 

Legal assistance for your current situation is not guaranteed. Be sure to include details about your situation in your application and be prepared to submit copies of relevant documentation (letters, court documents, etc.). 

If we cannot assist you, you will have the option to withdraw your application and receive a refund of your membership dues (minus any rush fee). 

If you indicate on your membership application that you need help resolving a legal problem affecting your homeschool, we will need to review your application. We will typically contact you about your legal situation within 3 business days. 

Membership acceptance is determined after legal review is complete, which may take several weeks.

If we determine we can help with your homeschool’s current legal situation, we will activate your membership and you will get access to HSLDA member benefits. 

If we cannot assist you with your legal situation, you will have the option to withdraw your application and receive a refund of your membership dues (minus any rush fee). 

To receive an initial contact within 1 business day, you can accelerate your application with a nonrefundable rush fee of $40. 

Once your application has been reviewed and your membership activated, you will receive a welcome email. Then you will be able to immediately access your membership benefits by logging into your online account.

Anyone can create a free HSLDA account to get additional resources on our website, like recorded webinars and high school transcript templates.
