If you are charged criminally, then you are going to need an immigration lawyer and a criminal defense lawyer. The consequences are elevated for you, not just for the criminal aspect, but for the immigration one as well.
Depending on the full retail value, you could be facing felony charges. Depending on your criminal history, you could be facing mandatory jail time. If you have not yet done so, I urge you to retain a criminal defense attorney to represent you and find out what the immigration consequences are if you are charged criminally or are ordered to appear in court.See question
I was searched I told them I had it on me then i was put in cuffs smh. That's all that happened
There are going to be other questions a defense lawyer would ask you based on what you said here. Was there a warrant? Do you have a criminal history? Anyone else involved other than the arresting officer? What kind of drugs were allegedly involved?
You should not have said anything incriminating like admitting what you had. But, now you need a lawyer to defend you to either do damage control or find a way to avoid becoming convicted of the charge. If you haven't done so, hire a lawyer or use a public defender before your next court date.See question
NJ TRO dismissed, however, judge permanently revoked my gun rights..I have no record, I feel if TRO is dismissed I should get my fire arms rights back..How can NJ take my rights away if TRO is dismissed?
The mere allegation could have been enough to extinguish your second amendment rights in New Jersey, even if the underlying TRO was dismissed.
The mere allegation could constitute a danger to the public health, safety, or welfare, which is a disqualifier to firearms ownership in NJ.
The facts matter, and you may need to appeal the decision or file a motion to be relieved from the impact of the court's order.
Common misconception is if a TRO is issued and removed, that firearms get returned automatically. Not true.
You would need to contact an attorney in private to see what, if anything, can be done to restore your Second Amendment rights in this state.See question

Its better to have nothing showing on your criminal record than having an arrest show up on your criminal record, even if the outcome is dismissal. Not sure of anyone who would say an expungement is a waste of time or why such a thing would be said, but if you have the means to retain an attorney to assist you expunge a criminal record, then do so.See question

You're prohibited from being able to lawfully own firearms while subject to a final restraining order. As to your occupation as an electrical engineer, not sure.
You can try filing a motion to have the Final Restraining Order lifted or removed, but it is extraordinarily difficult to do. I strongly urge to retain an attorney to try and ask the judge on your behalf to remove the Final Restraining Order.See question
