457 to PR to ???

Here is my story.

Last September I contacted an agent to get my PR started. I filled out the forms, sent them off and waited for my case officer. After a few weeks of hearing nothing I got in touch and was told my boss hadn't sent their side of the paperwork. I immediately contacted my boss who had said he had sent it. I was heading back to the UK for over a month, and left with them both agreeing to get in touch.
I came back to Australia late in November to find no progress still and both agent and boss blaming each other. In January I moved to another agent and everything seemed to be going perfectly until 3 weeks ago when my boss has decided to apply for liquidation. I've already been told he will start up again and it's to clear debts.
My question, is there anything I can do to continue my PR. I have been on this visa for 3 years.

Thanks in advance for any help

Without a sponsor and an approved nomination your PR application will be dead in the water. Most likely you should withdraw your application rather than get a refusal, find a new sponsor and start again, unless you are able to apply for one of the skilled visas (1809,190,489).
