before you speak with an immigration attorney, you need to discuss this with a criminal defense attorney in the area where this warrant is from. Once you do that then you can speak to an immigration attorney to determine the best way to resolve this problem. Use Find a Lawyer here on Avvo to get started.

Good luck.
