l got arrested by Border Patrol agents at my local DMV office for being out of status as a student even though my visa will expire next year. I was detained for a few days and released on a bond and will have to appear before an immigration judge at a later date.I am currently not in school but in the process of been admitted in a another school. My wife has not yet petitioned the i130 for me yet ; we are in the process of doing that though.
What steps or actions can l take? Also if l hire an attorney do l still have to be present on the court date before the immigration judge or my attorney can represent me? ThanksCan l still stay here and not be deported? What are my chances of staying here? Thanks
