PERM pending for 365 days - Can I switch employer now?


Recommended Posts

My PERM pending for more than 365 days now with my current employer, he filed my PERM at start of 6th year. 
1. Can I switch/trasfer my H1 to new employer now? 
2. How much time I get with new employer? 1 year? 
3. If new employer agree to file fresh PERM, I am planning to get my PERM filed within 3 months and PERM will be approved 
(assumption) in 7-8 months after filing and 140 can be done in premium, so that I can get 3 yrs from then onwards. Is this 
right strategy?
