Under Federal Immigration Law there are many
different "rules" that may apply to your immigration case
Depending on the circumstances, immigration cases can be quite complicated. As you may know, federal immigration law includes immigration statutes, immigration regulations, agency interpretations, decisions by the Board of Immigration Appeals, and Federal decisions.
Statutes are what some people refer to as the letter of the law. They are essentially the written statements of law that are passed by the Congress. Simplified examples of immigration statutes would include, "A person who has engaged in _____ is inadmissible to the United States," or "A person who is granted _____ shall be authorized to engage in employment."

As you might imagine, no matter how carefully statutes are written there is almost always room for interpretation because statutes oftentimes use general language and are usually not designed to specify the intended outcome for every single possible scenario. The federal immigration laws and the INA are no exceptions. Nevertheless, the immigration statutes in the INA are the usual starting point for any legal analysis regarding federal immigration law.
In order to maximize your chances of success, you should be familiar with all the "rules" that apply in the context of your immigration case based on your particular facts and your individual situation.
The Immigration and Nationality Act
Immigration Cases Can Be Very Complex
The above are the main sets of "rules" that you may have to be familiar with in order to maximize your chances of success with your immigration case. Together, these sets of "rules" are the federal immigration laws. We will go over each, from the general to the more specific, with the last sets describing how the general "rules" are applied to particular sets of facts. You may want to consider this five part overview of the main components of federal immigration law in determining whether you need a lawyer for your immigration case.
The federal immigration statutes are organized in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Although first introduced in 1952, the INA has evolved over the years and has been amended numerous times. The statutes in the INA are the foundation of current federal immigration law in the United States and can be found at Title 8 of the United States Code.
In the next segment you will find a brief description of how another component of federal immigration law, the immigration regulations, fits into the immigration law landscape.
Consider that a knowledgeable immigration lawyer may help you solve your situation quicker and may help you avoid potential future problems.
