Move to H4 status if your spouse is on H1B status. Or else leave the country as advised by attorney.

there are few "Ifs and buts" in your case. Labor can take anywhere from 3 to 9 months for the approval. Say "if" you get your labor approved in june/july 2014 (I am averaging it to six months), you can file for I-140 with premium process. If you get I 140 approved (if there are no RFEs and you get your approval in 15 business days), you can get three years of H1b extension beyond six years. 

 

or

 

Change status to H4, if you have the option.
