Is it truly in the children's interests to home school them where you live?
If you're income is less than the cap of $7500 net monthly in TX guidelines, you can certainly go back and get it revised to reflect the drop. But it seems the real issue here is your ex is an unemployed stay at home, you have condoned that role, and that as long as you continue to do so & have a significant income disparity, you will be paying significant support in Texas.
At this point i do believe its best for them to continue being home schooled. They are very well rounded, have a good group of Christian friends and participate in a lot of activites. Yanking them away from kids they have known thier whole life and throwing them into public school would be just another change they would have to cope with and not one that id like to force upon them, nor is it best for them. She was a bad wife but passionately schools them. Plus the freedoms we (as parents) have with the kids is a good benifit as well. Get to spend a lot more time with them with the flexability of not having to conform to a school schedule. The reason she can afford to stay home still is because we accumilated a lot of "stuff" and a business during our marriage and i had the choice of negotiating a buy out or selling it. My buy out price was very good and i came out way better than sellin it. The plus side for her is she gets to not work for the next 10 years. Even if taking CS away she wont have to work with what im paying her.
