My husband was laid off and it's been tough, but it helps us to remember this is temporary (like everything else in life). And it's been good for us to remember that we are a team! Also our dog still thinks we are both the coolest people in the world.

Remember that the Lord is a good father. He sees you always, and guides you always - no father would take away a good thing and leave you to flounder; something better and fitting to your purpose will be provided!

Have faith and surrender your worries and anxieties and let Him work!

Leaving law and buying a Business? I’ve been at this for about seven years now. I’ve moved positions three or four times, including clerking, small town practice, and regional mid-sized firms. My practice has been general with litigation emphasis. Looking to make an exit through buying a business. Not a passion project business, just good revenue with the option to put managers in place later on for the day to day. Buy free time and opportunity, basically. Anyone else do(ing) something similar?

My husband and I worked together at the same company for a year in different departments and they laid off 25 employees last week. My husband was one of them. 💔
It was dealt with poorly and severance benefits were bad compared to other companies we are seeing in the media. I’m really struggling to move forward and heal. The priority is for me to support him finding a new job but I just feel sick giving my time and energy to this company when they did this to us. any advice for strength😔

On Thursday I was informed by the lead PO and HR that leadership had decided that the project management office was no longer necessary for the company and all three of us, the director and the two technical PMs, were being let go. None of us were given any notice.

They offered me 2 weeks of severance pay and I negotiated it to 3.

Follow up post to my last post…My husband was laid off from the company where I also work. I am feeling really isolated / depressed about working and moving forward. I’m also getting to a stage where I’m really sad that people haven’t reached out to either my husband or myself to send well wishes or provide support. It’s like they don’t know what to say or I make them feel awkward so they don’t bother…I’m trying to focus on a few that have been supportive but it’s hard…Any words of advice? 😞

Hi everyone,

I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations. 

I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks
