    How long were you out of status?

    You need a lawyer. Staying in the US while out of status typically gets you deported.

    You worked while out of status?

    Paying taxes or no, you're not permitted to work unless you've been legally authorized to do so, either via a work visa or a Green Card.

    You need a lawyer. You are not going to be able to get this untangled by a bunch of duffers on an internet message board. You need the help of a professional, and you need it right now. You're potentially in a large load of trouble.
