3. Have a plan for you and your family in case someone is detained.
This plan should include emergency numbers, a list of important contact information and a file with important documents. Whether you want your child to accompany you to your home country in the event you face deportation, or wish for your child to stay in the United States in the care of another trusted adult, you should begin planning to make these arrangements.
4. Contact an immigration attorney about your legal options before speaking or signing anything.
Find a local, nonprofit legal services organization that can help you find out if there is an immigration option for you to get a green card, work permit or visa, or protect you from deportation. Also, keep a list of these local organizations in case you ever have a problem with ICE.
