Charges dropped but immigration hold still continues. Immigration lawyer needed?

Asked over 1 year ago - Dallas, TX

The father of my kids and I were both together and then got pulled over.When the officer checked our info, she saw I had a restraining order on the person I was with and arrested him right after.He went to court and the charges were dropped but he still has an immigration hold. He is a legal resident, is it possible that he may get his residency taken and deported. Should I hire an immigration lawyer for this? How long does ICE have to come and pick him up before they can release him?
