In order to marry him my grandparents said I need to make sure that they will not have to change their will and that if they died only I would get any money. It feels weird doing this but what papers do I need my boyfriend to sign?
1- he is a non citizen
2- he is waiting to see if he will continue with his visa here/get his green card and it will take approx 1-2 more weeks. We are planning to get married in a few days.
also if possible, may I ask what kind of papers will he need to fill out so that he can stay here legally after we get married, and how long would that take. If he didn't get his green card but we were married they would not make him leave would they?
thank you for your time and help
Just answered your same queston elsewhere. You need a pre-nup as you know. Once married he can petition to remain as married to a US citizen. Since you are vague about hsi legal status (perhaps overstayed prior visa) his ability to stay cannot be totallly analysed.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advise" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.
In California, inheritances are separate property. I assume your grandparents will names you as a beneficiary. If so, anything you inherit will be yours and your husband would have no interest in that inheritance. You should not have to sign anything at all. The law should take care of this. You do need to be educated on what to do with that inheritance. You can put it in danger by putting the money in a joint account. Thus, keep any inheritance in an account in your name alone. If it is property, take title in your name alone. A pre-nup is not necessary.
As far as the immigration situation, it can be complicated and it is possible, in some circumstances, that he will have to leave the US temporarily. If I were you, I would see an immigration attorney immediately. You do not provide enough facts for anyone to give you a precise answer to this part of your question.
