Thanks for the response. My offer letter did not state any contract clause.
I was asked to respond to the offer letter using the following vebiage:
"Thanks for the offer, I have attached the signed last page of the offer letter and I accept that I would be bearing the cost of the premium h1b transfer."
I am willing to pay them this additional cost required for the premium transfer. I hope I wont have to pay anything else.
This is extremely frustrating and disappointing to hear that you changed your mind once again. I asked you multiple times to check whether you were sure about wanting to join XXXX. You also had plenty of time to think this over before accepting the offer and agreeing to join XXXX. Your latest decision has not only cost Visage quite a bit of time and effort, but also considerable money for processing your H1-B transfer.
Below is a list of expenses that XXXX had to incur to transfer your H1-B because you decided to join XXXX. Since it is your decision to not join XXXX anymore, we would like you to pay XXXX for all the expenses incurred and not just the cost for Premium processing.
I am also cc’ing our CEO, and our head of HR, on this email. They will be following with you up on this email.

Attorney Fees for H1-B Processing
Do I have to pay the whole H1b processing cost or just the premium processing fees as mentioned in my offer letter acceptance mail ?
If I have to pay the whole H1b amount, do they have to provide me with a receipt of the amount they paid to the attorneys for filling my H1b ?
