Legal Question in Immigration Law in Maryland

I am a student on F1 visa. Been here for 5 years exactly. My visa has sinced expired on August 6, 2013. My husband is now filing an I-130 for me. My question is, do I put on the form that I have worked here and filed taxes with my husband for 2012. I received a work permit and a social in 2009 but the work permit have expired also in 2010. I'm just wondering if this will cause any problems for me with USCIS or can I explained that the economy got bad and family members were unable to pay my way so I had to seek employment.

If your husband is a U.S. citizen, then it should not create a problem. However, you should not be working without a valid EAD.
