My fiance is from Philippines and currently lives in Kuwait. Our plan is for me to go there in a couple of months and marry him while I am there. I need to know the process to get him here to the U.S. as my husband after we are married.
You would file an I-130 petition to start the process. Once the I-130 is approved, you would then file more applications with the National Visa Center to get him an interview at the US consulate abroad. Consider working with an immigration attorney to make this process go as smooth as possible.
There are some options if you are an U.S. citizen to get a waiver for your spouse, please contact an immigration attorney in private to discuss the possible options. If you would like a free consultation feel free to contact my office (323-803-7147).

Yes you may be able to transfer the H1B, if company B agrees to file your H1B as well. Although it might be a bit too early to file it because you would not have three or more payslips to attach. And yes you can work on OPT for company B if company A does not work out. All the best.
What is your immigration status? If you are US citizen you can file a fiance petition for your fiance to come here and get married. That is the legal way to get married.

You will not get deported just because of this reason unless you have a very serious criminal conviction or arrest warrant.
