I did a whois lookup on your domain and the regsitrar for your domain is enom. So shoot an email to enom's customer service and they should be able to take care of your issue. At least you started this BEFORE your domain expired! Good luck!
4 years back I had the same issue. I emailed enom and requested to transfer the domain to another registrar. enom then sent an email to the registrant email address (which was mine of course) and everything worked out within a few days.
