If I get laid off, how much of a grace period do I have before I have to leave the country? Is this dependent on my employer? Can I use that time to find another job?

I used to be in consulting but moved over to social impact work/nonprofit. I actually took an increase for my current job, which is certainly rare in the space. Getting laid off this month due to budget cut. Feeling depressed and no interest in applying, interviewing or career search. Also no roles I’m finding will hit close to the salary I’m at. Thinking about consulting again but just not sure I’m even willing to go back after loving this work and this job 1000% times more. Advice appreciated.
