  1. The employer must withdraw the petition and the underlying LCA. Your petition is likely in the Public Access File which you should be able to review. Whether or not you're currently in status pursuant to a cap subject petition will determine if a new employer can file for you.


  2. No.

  3. For CAP exception purposes, yes.
