Frequently Asked Questions

Enterline and Partners is run by licensed U.S. attorneys.

The difference between the two is enormous. An immigration attorney is a licensed professional who is regulated by a Bar Association. An attorney has also graduated from law school and has passed a legal licensing examination and is required to follow a very strict code of ethics so as to best represent their clients. An immigration consultant or agent is unlicensed and is not bound by the same rules of professional responsibility as an attorney. Furthermore, because attorney’s are regulated by their Bar Association, they have a standard to follow which provides clients with protection should an issue arise.

Enterline and Partners handles a wide range of family, business, investment and educational immigration cases.

Professional fees will depend on the complexity of your case. The fees will be discussed during the consultation session.

As licensed attorneys, we are unable to guarantee you any results. The only thing we can guarantee is that we will work hard and do our very best in representing you in your case.

Nobody has any connections or a special relationship with consular officers inside the U.S. Consulate in Ho Chi Minh City. A person who alleges that they have connections or a special relationship with consular officers is most likely not telling the truth in order to gain your trust.
