I'm employed in a startup which has filed my H1- last year.

Hi Pearl I'm employed in a startup which has filed my H1-B last year. My H1-B got picked up with LCA of 105K $ But our company ran out of funding so they are shutting down the company.JA: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) yet?Customer: So considering the H1-B visa holders they have reduced our pay to 60K $ for 6 weeks so that we can find new jobs. I'm confident that I will get a new job in this week. But I'm worried about whether this will impact my H1-B transfer. What can be done while filing H1-B transfer so that the process can be smooth. My previous company is ready to give any letter if required saying that they couldn't pay the salary mentioned in LCA. Can you please let me know if there is anything that I need to get or take from my previous company.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I spoke with a lawyer he suggested that if we can get a letter from the company that should be good. But I just want to make sureJA: This sounds important. The lawyer will definitely help you with this. I'm going to connect you with a lawyer who has 3898 happy customers and a 4.7 out of 5 Rating. Anything else we should know before I connect you?Customer: No what care we should take before we file the petition for H1-B transfer is what I need to know
