What documents do I need for him to sponsor me for a green card after we marry? Thank You
Marriage certificate. Hopefully, your partner is a U.S. citizen. If so, he will need his birth certificate, or if he is a naturalized citizen, his Certificate of Naturalization.

Congratulations on your wedding. You will need documents establishing your eligibility for LPR status, any immigration related documents, passports, birth certificate, your spouse's birth certificate and spouse's evidence of U.S. citizenship, if you have children, their birth certificates, certified copies of your marriage certificate, any divorce decree, if any, supporting evidence of your relationship, i.e., pictures, utility bills or official documents showing that you two live together.
There are some threshold issues that should be dealt with first. I would consult with an immigration attorney and make sure you know exactly what you are getting into and to avoid any potential negative consequences.
