Customer: What is the cost of a session with the immigration lawyer?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.The total you are paying for the question is about $40 I believe. You are not charged more for answering my questions. Please tell me your exact question about the undocumented person that would like to return to Colombia. I'm happy to help. :)

She lost her expired passport from Colombia. She doesn't have any U.S. documentations, except a shelter i.d. How can she go back to her country permanently? Get deported?
