Can I apply for adjustment of status and what happens if I overstay my parole?

Asked about 4 years ago - Pardeeville, WI

I married my husband, a US citizen after legal entry into the US on a visa waiver. We were in the process of applying for my adjustment of status when I had to return to my country for business. Before I left we filed the I130 which is still being processed. I thought my visa waiver was still valid and came back to the US where I have now been paroled for 30 days. Can we apply for a new adjustment of status including the I485? What are the consequences to overstaying parole?
Thank you
