I got my OPT after i graduate from an US college. Then I found a job under the OPT status. I just talked to my current employer about the H1B and they want me to pay for all the fees and fill all the paperwork. The administrator said "Just fill the paperwork and I will sign it." He also said that I will be resposible for the fees.
I went online and found out that it is employer's expends to sponsor me. Websites also talk about private company is less likely to follow the rules. Of course, the facility I work for is private.
My question is that, they said they will sponsor me to get the visa, but could they said they don't want to anymore after knowing that they have to pay for all the fees?
Also, I was wondering how long would it take if I wish to just do the regular process? And can I go back home to visit if I get the H1B visa?
I appericate any answer/comments,
