She can get an attorney. In most states you can either get the husband to pay fees and/or take marital funds to retain an attorney. Just because you're the spouse who doesn't work doesn't mean you have to rely on pro bono rep.

Had my four virtual interviews in the beginning of January and have not heard anything yet. Is this normal? In the interviews they said i would get the feedback in 3-5 days.

I reached out the my recruiter a few weeks ago and they said they would check with the HM to see what the status was and would get back to me in a few days. Still have not heard anything.

I know no news might be good news but I was wondering if this is normal or should I consider it a lost cause and not reach out anymore.
