I agree with attorney Capriotti. You need to meet with an immigration attorney before this thing escalates.

Complex fact situation. Schedule a consultation with an experienced deportation defense attorney.
You will soon be placed under removal proceedings.
Why do you need to retain the best deportation attorney possible?
Because the government will be represented by an attorney who has probably appeared in hundreds, or even thousands, of such hearings. (I know – I served as an INS Trial Attorney until 1982.) If your attorney is not knowledgeable or is inexperienced, you will be at a distinct disadvantage.
Too many people appear at their deportation hearings without taking the time to find the best and most experienced immigration attorney to represent them. Instead, they look for an inexpensive attorney or, worse yet, appear without an attorney. This is a recipe for disaster. Why? Because you are creating a record before the Immigration Judge. If you lose, and then hire a new and improved attorney to appeal the Judge’s decision, he will be saddled with the record of proceedings that you, or your inexpensive attorney, created before the Judge.
