Hello. It would be inappropriate to state a certain number of days, or hours, as an answer to your question.  In the event that you are facing such a circumstance, I recommend that you immediately confer privately with an attorney of your choosing.  The attorney will review the facts of the your particular situation in discerning options and timelines.  Typically the client seeks delay.  An attorney may assist effectively to help with client achieve her/his goals within the bounds of law.  I recommend that you make several telephone calls to attorneys when selecting the lawyer you want to help you, because it is critical that you feel a sense of great trust with the attorney and the matter is a situation of an emergency nature so, in my view, you need legal help with no delay whatsoever.  All the best.
