H1b transfer to new employer, I-140 approved, h1b visa for existing company being extended for 3 yrs!!!

Asked almost 2 years ago - Chicago, IL

Company A which I worked for, went bankrupt on This mid of July. Company A sponsored me for h1b visa (extension for 3 years after My I-140 got approved on yr 2010).

I got an offer from Company B on this September, but this is a new company (just started business on September) and I am the only employee hired.

My questions?
1) can I do H1b transfer from company A to new employer? (since I were in US for 2 months and unemployed)
2) how much probably the legal fees to process the h1 visa for my employer?

Thanks!

    As for fees, ask around. More experienced attorneys tend to be more expensive ... but some would say that we're worth it.

    Answered . The most common issue with new companies is whether or not it has the ability to pay your salary. If it is a new company, then chances are, they do not have a lot of financial records. It's definitely a good idea to talk to an attorney about what the new company can and cannot provide.
