Timely Filing of H-1B Extension

My H-1B status will expire the last week of January 2013. I cannot file my petition for an extension until after January 1, 2013. Will that be too late to file an extension?

ANSWER: 

A petition is considered to be timely filed as long as it reaches USCIS prior to the expiration of your current H-1B status.
