Thank you for all of your help. My very dear friend is divorced, 37, lives with her parents, is employed, is in school for Masters degree, has a bank account, supports her family financially. She does not own property or vehicle. She will make the application/interview in Recife. Purpose of her trip to visit friends in USA during her vacation for one week. Do you see any roadblocks or red flags? What would you recommend she take with her to the interview? Any tips on what to say or not to say in the interview? Thank you, thank you!

ADVISE "TAKE YOUR MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE TO THE AIRPORT WHEN LEAVING BRAZIL. GOL AIRLINES DID NOT BELIEVE WE WERE MARRIED AND ALMOST DID NOT ISSUE A BOARDING PASS FOR MY WIFE. MY WIFE HAD TO SHOW HER BRAZILIAN DOCUMENTS SHOWING HER LAST NAME AS MINE"

Her situation is what her situation is.

If she wants to go on holiday to the US and can clearly afford it and has strong ties to go back, should not be an issue.

Answer any questions truthfully and succinctly. Might be worth taking bank statements. Unlikely to be asked for anything, she will have completed the application beforehand.
