I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.
This is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. Many find the phone call to be the easiest and fastest way to get the information they need. I am also happy to continue online.
Did you know the person was underage when you were chatting?
Why do you think the police will contact you?
Yes, I am here. I am reviewing your responses.
Was your chat sexual in nature? Do they know where you live?
I suspect they will not be able to find you. It is not that easy to find an accurate location on someone without specific software.
If the police show up then refuse to speak to them. If they arrest you retain local defense counsel.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys). Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:
It is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.
There is not really anything else you can do right now, but keep quiet and do not discuss it. I personally do not think anything will happen to you.
