Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Good afternoon, I am an Immigration Law attorney and former Prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office. I'll be answering your questions today, please understand this is for informational purposes only, and we do not currently have an attorney-client relationship. I've reviewed your question, please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!
My best recommendation would be to hire an immigration attorney to follow your case.
Since immigration contacted you, then that means they are quite possibly aware of the fact that you have illegally overstayed in the US. This would make you eligible to be deported, and it's quite possible that you may be detained by ICE immigration services when you go into court on Monday.
As such, my recommendation is that you quickly hire an immigration attorney so that they can file any necessary immigration appeals on your behalf, and try to stop deportation on the grounds of extreme hardship and the fact that you have a minor child here in the US with medical care needs.
I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I am afraid I have some bad news for you in that if you are here illegally, even though your child has this medical issue, the immigration courts are not going to really give you much sympathy. They can allow you to have your child stay here for medical care with a legal guardian if they cannot get the medical care in your country, but since you are have over stayed, you really need to consider a voluntary departure from the US, because you will be spending money on an attorney who will not be able to help actually keep you in the country. You need to attend the appointment and you can retain an attorney after the appointment or you can just agree to voluntary departure, which would be really in your best interest in this situation.
