  1. Yes, delinquent child support will affect your case. Hire an immigration attorney to represent you in removal proceedings.


  2. There is not enough facts to advise you properly here. And you may have a case for the domestic violence or VAWA. Also, if you are in removal proceedings, then you should have a lawyer representing you and you should consult with your lawyer about your case. If you don't have an immigration lawyer, I highly recommend that you hire one, because your case is very serious.
