My husband is a 36year old first year sped teacher. We had our first kid in October and he was diagnosed with MS last January. He was asked to resign or be fired on Friday. How can I help?

What do the Partners on here think of how these layoffs are being handled? Very curious (P1, where are you???)
When we tell other agencies/employers you were laid off (which is the truth) do you recruiters and employers believe us? Or do you think we’re lying and that we were actually fired?
I was laid off almost a month ago and today I got an email from USCIS saying “we received correspondence for Form I-129, Petition for non immigrant worker” What does this mean?
How do you talk to your boss when your job has evolved to something very different from what you were hired to do and you’re not happy without getting fired or phased out?
I was just laid off from a mid-sized B2B agency trying to go creative and changing their mind. Any advice on the portfolio since the creative is... lacking?
How long were you in consulting before you stopped thinking every perceived misstep would get you fired?
I was laid off a month back, and have been actively recruiting. Every time I feel like the ball is rolling, I get another rejection/no reply. I also feel pressure because my lease is ending, so finding a job is a priority because I cannot sign another one before I figure out where I need to go. I feel so discouraged.
What is the best way to get through being laid off? It’s been a few months. This is my first lay off so it’s been tough. Hope to find a job soon.
Since I got laid off in April I’ve been focusing on freelance until I get a full time job. Do I put freelance on my resume as my present job or is that not important?
Friend delayed her wedding due to coronavirus concerns. Was going to be in September of this year and now it’s going to be September 2021. She wants the bridal party to ‘stay excited’ though and host bimonthly events (virtually for now) in the meantime starting now and leading up to it. I feel bad but I’m already incredibly exhausted with work post-round 2 of layoffs and dealing with my family. I almost want to bow out of being a bridesmaid...
Anyone else having trouble staying focused while working from home? I’m in a tiny apartment in NYC and with my husband and I both being here 24/7 I am feeling very trapped and never get any meaningful alone time, which I need. He normally travels a bit for work, so this is really different for us. My focus is shot, I’m terrified of getting laid off and yet am having trouble motivating myself. Any advice? Anxiety through the roof too.
Broad question: Would you pay the sticker price for a non-HSW M7 MBA for two years of “self discovery”, likely without a significant increase in salary (but new industry)?

Good excuse to take time off tomorrow to prepare for an interview? The interview was set yesterday and can't take day off since am new to the project.
I’m currently not at my husband’s place. He lives with his sister and his mother. I left his place on a bad note with multiple quarrels (like I had posted last week). He mentioned to me that he has been sleeping next to his mother since I left his place. Is this a normal behavior? He says there is no specific reason for him to move into his mom’s room instead of sleeping in his own room. Strangely, I am finding this a very odd behavior. Let me know if this isn’t something to think upon.
