You need to address this with an attorney - quickly.
While there's a slight possibility of a "nunc pro tunc" extension (filing an extension now and asking USCIS to treat it as if it had been filed before the 9/30 expiration date with the argument that it's late for circumstances out of your control), I'm not clear that this would work and if not you're building up more time here without status.
The best option may be to leave near-term and file for more H-1b time now [if eligible] with the expectation that you will get a new stamp and enter from abroad to activate the new H-1B. This may be possible even under AC-21.
If planning to adjust status here, there is a provision that essentially forgives lapses in status and work without authorization up to 180 days.

Even before reading my colleague's answer, I had the same thought that by entering without inspection again after doing this the first time and staying a year before leaving, your husband may have triggered a permanent bar. A lot will depend on dates when these things happened

Really is no such thing as a priority date for a naturalization case. I'm assuming that's just the date you filed.
Typically the green card is surrendered at the oath ceremony. As to timelines, go here: https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDisplayInit.do and select your field office, then look at the date currently being worked on for the N-400 (though in reality you may see variation from what's published). It generally isn't useful to contact them unless they are 30 days or more past your date of receipt for published processing time.

I am 20 years old , dependent child of an L1 visa holder and i want to marry my boyfriend who is a citizen . What could happen if i marry him?
Speak with an immigration lawyer about this.
You wouldn't automatically lose L-2 status just by marrying a citizen (though you would be turning 21 in your case).
At the same time, you don't automatically become a green card holder either - you need to go through a process after the marriage to obtain the green card. If the ability to travel internationally is important to you, I suggest beginning that process at least three to four months before you turn 21 to avoid gaps in ability to travel.
Again, speak with a lawyer for further guidance on how to go about the process.See question
Can i petition now my 19 year old step daughter who is living outside the US while we are currently in the process of adjusting the status of her mom, my wife. She came here as a tourist and we married here in the US.We just submitted the form of ...
While I suspect not, you would need to speak with an immigration attorney to be sure.
Assuming you are a citizen, you can petition for a stepdaughter assuming the marriage which created the stepchild/stepparent relationship occurred before her 18th birthday. It's possible that this may have been the case, and you are only dealing with the immigration petition for the mother now.
But, if the marriage was more recent/after the daughter's 18th birthday the step relationship would not have been established in time.
there may be other options for the daughter, so it would make sense to consult an immigration attorney.See question
I am a LPR, have been for over 20 years. I THINK I might have made a false USC claim on a job application almost 4 years ago, I am still employed with the same company. I created a My e- verify account recently and noticed my employer used the E v...
I can only echo my colleague -this can be extremely, extremely serious with some really horrible consequences.
You need to gather all the information you can about precisely what happened (i.e.: why do you think you may have done this? Do you remember specifically stating that you were a citizen, or having presented a false passport or other document when completing an I-9 form)? Or is something in your E-Verify self check result causing uncertainty?
Get your information and evidence together and speak with an attorney.See question
Good Morning, My mother is a green card holder for 2 years and she would like to start the petition to bring my brother who lives in Ecuador to the US. My brother is married and I had heard that residents can only petition of single adult sons...
Unfortunately, not in these circumstances - a green card holder can petition for a spouse of child under 21 (Family 2A category), or an UNMARRIED child over 21 (Family 2b category). There's no category for a married over 21 child unless and until your mother naturalizes as a US citizen.
Even then, the process can take many years - right now, that category is backlogged by about 11 years.
you/your mother/your brother may wish to consult an attorney to explore other, perhaps faster options for your brother.See question

Congratulations both on the initial lottery selection and on the approval! You're correct that this is a great opportunity, and shouldn't be wasted.
It isn't completely clear whether you are presently here or abroad - if here and the case was processed as a change of status, my colleague is right that you need to be concerned with maintenance of status issues - you would be required to joint the petitioning employer (if in the US, 60 days after you became eligible to work for the employer).
If abroad, there is officially no specific time - other than the validity dates of the petition - after which it becomes unusable for entry. HOWEVER, the longer you wait, the more the consulate may question whether there is really a bona fide job here (the company still wants to employ you in the role and you still intend to occupy that role).
The longer you wait, the more difficult it would be to get the visa stamp. You might try providing documentation of the family medical issue that's keeping you abroad and that the employer is still holding the position open for you.

my husband is in elsalvador waiting for his immigrant visa I filed an i864 in October of 2015 the expiration date is july 31st 2017 do I need to file a new one or do I just keep on sending in tax documents
I agree with my colleague that most likely they will only ask for updated documents (tax returns/W-2s, verification of employment etc.)
That said, if he gets an interview appointment, it may be safest to present a new/updated I-864 prepared with the latest information.

She is 13 years living here USA. We married 11 years ago. She came here without any papers now I try to submit my application for alien relative. I need to know what's the process for do this please I need help
You really need to consult an attorney.
It sounds like your wife entered "without inspection" - she won't be able to switch to a green card here and given how long she's been here, she would be subject to a bar to coming back if she left to process in the home country...unless she is eligible for a waiver.
You may be able to get the I-130 approved, but without waiver eligibility or eligibility for a couple of other exceptions (which are possible, but unlikely here) you may not be able to use the I-130 to get here a green card.
This is complicated, and you really need to speak with a lawyer.See question
