H1B visa pay (Attorney fee)


I was selected for H1-B visa. And my company doesn’t have company lawyer, so I hired immigrant attorney for my visa process. However, my company is sponsoring other expenses but attorney. Asking me to pay for attorney fee. Is it legal? if it’s illegal, does it apply to employee who’s in probation period too?

Per INA H1B filing fees must be paid by the employer but it doesn’t say anything about immigration lawyer fees. Generally H1B employers bear the complete cost but may be your employer is a small body shop and if that’s the case beware of such employers.

Hi thanks for the response. but I’m still wondering what “beware of such employers”. means. That means I should afford that? and that’s still legal?
