It is hard to give you an opinion without knowing full facts of your case. If you do not like what your attorney is telling you, schedule a personal consultation with another attorney for a second opinion, bring all of your documents for that consultation.
This is not legal advice and a client attorney relationship is not created. For a free consultation call (718)234-5588.
There is not enough information in your post to give you an appropriate answer. Consult with other attorneys if you do not agree with your attorney's advice. Perhaps with more detail and information, another option may come to light.

Removal hearing is to determine whether you are in this country legally. If not, the judge has very little room in terms of keeping you here. This "room" has to do with the potential relief from removal you may have. VD is one of them. It gives you an opportunity to leave without a removal order in your record. IF you are not planing to leave, do not take it, as it carries additional bars for violating it, which come on top of the removal imposed bars on admission. The problem is that these bars cannot be waived.

VD might be a good option only if 1. you leave the country on time. 2. you do not have other bars to coming back (unlawful presence etc.). I am not a fan of VDs due to the harsh consequences of failure to depart after taking VD. I'd say meet with a lawyer and talk about your plans and options.
