Unauthorized work on F-1 visa

Asked over 2 years ago - Brunswick, OH

This question has been asked before but I do not know what the next step is. I have an F-1 visa and am in the process of filling out the forms (i-130 and i-485) for a green card. Through school, I had a part time job which I now think was a big NO NO. How can I clear this up before I try to file for my green card? I talked to my DSO and she has no clue.
