Derick Dillard is leaning on his family as he tries to get through law school at the University of Arkansas.

The disgraced former Counting On star, 29, who reportedly has no steady job, was thrilled to post an Instagram photo on Friday of himself and his two sons by wife Jill Duggar Dillard, 27.

The picture showed Derek sitting at what looks like a school cafeteria table, smiling with a tortilla chip in his hand.

His son Israel, 3, is eating with him while younger son Samuel, 1, sits in his stroller by the table.

Derick captioned the snap, "Late night study sessions = Dillard family dinner time gets transplanted to school! Since I couldn't be home, home came to me :) Thanks @jillmdillard for bringing a delicious Mexican food supper to school the other night!"

Jill recently took fans by surprise by boasting that her husband "works all day."

Derick currently has no known job, but he announced he's attending law school after being fired from Counting On.

The controversial former reality TV star recently brought wife Jill to his law school class at the University of Arkansas, as Radar has reported.

In a shocking post to his Instagram, Derick said his "favorite study buddy" was Jill.

Radar spoke to a spokeswoman for the college, who explained that one of Derick's professors encouraged students to bring in periodic guests.

After being kicked off TLC for his transphobic statements, Derick slammed the network which has continued with Counting On, starring Jill's sisters.

"I don't watch any of them," Dillard said about TLC's shows. "I'm now aware of them, but I encourage others not to watch the filth on TLC…."

His latest photo post from law school with his sons also bugged some haters.

One person wrote in response via Instagram, "he is so judgmental. I wouldn't want a lawyer with such a closed mind regarding so many issues. Just saying."

Another opined, "He may have to just be a lawyer for people that believe as he does. He is against abortion and homosexuality. You cannot use your own opinions when defending someone or perhaps he will only choice clients that have the same beliefs."

A critic noted about the food delivery to her student husband, "Sweet of Jill to do that and give her sons a chance to spend time with him, but I wish she would find other interests to keep her occupied when Derick is not home. Law school is not 'family friendly' and he has a long way to go. She is going to have to branch out and find hobbies beside her husband or she is going to be miserable."

But one fan thought Jill's food delivery to her student husband was a good move.

"Jill is the sweetest! When I was getting my masters, my husband did the same. He would surprise me with lunch and dinner at my school. So thoughtful!" the online supporter wrote.
