    Answered . Not enough facts to determine what kind of a case it will be. Did you enter with or without a visa? If without you will need a waiver of unlawful presence (form I-601). As for what papers to fill out, it isn't always as easy as filling out a bunch of papers. Doing immigration cases on your own is risky.
