No, a boyfriend would not be qualified to sponsor you for lawful permanent residency.

Yes you can change your sponsor. However, you would need to divorce your current husband and marry your boyfriend and then have him file for you.

Yes, withdraw your current case, get a divorce and re-file. I would need details of your immigration history to advise if you are eligible to file in or out of the U.S. If you would like a consultation, procedures, documents required, and fees contact me as indicated below.
