Video Transcript:

1. My guess is they can. You can also have the employers' lawyers look into it or your lawyers look into it including making a phone call to the USCIS. Document what they have to say and if they say yes, then there is no problem, but if they say no it can be followed up further.

2. They can, later on, do a cap exemption. If you don't go through the lottery their right to do a cap exempt is already there.

3. No, it is October.
