First, you need to see a criminal lawyer. The lawyer will find out if you have been charged with dui. Was anyone else injured in the accident? It is possible you were or will be charged with something more serious. Once you know you have been charged with a crime and what the crime is, see an immigration lawyer.
A DUI conviction has serious consequences for foreign nationals or even resident aliens. You owe it to yourself to contact a lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues.
