Do you have a lawyer? It is high time you get one. You have lived illegally in the US for over 10 years, and you won't be able to get a green card based on your spouse's green card. Did you even read the I-485 application? It is actually spelled out there very explicitly. Also, no qualified lawyer would ever suggest that you apply for AOS before your spouse is a citizen.

If you are deported, you will be banned from entering the country for 10 years. Your only hope is getting a waiver, and it will be very hard to get (in fact, next to impossible, unless your citizen child has some sort of horrible health condition).
