Murfreesboro, TN asked in Immigration Law for North Carolina

Q: We filed a I-589, 19 monthes ago. The tracking number shows forms delivered. Received no receipt. Should we reapply?

We (my husband, daughter and I) came into the US on a B2 visa and then applied for asylum. My husband abandoned us and went back to SA. Our case was cancelled. We got a lawyer that reapplied for us but 19 mnds later we have not received a receipt number. Our workers permits have expired and we have no proof that we are legally in the country. I got a divorce and remarried. My daughter turned 21 and also got married. ( Both to US citizens). We want to stay in the asylum process. Can we reapply again as we have not received a receipt number? Or what should we do?
