My fiancé is 56 years old- 20 years older than me with a net worth of 5.5 million. He has his own company with a yearly salary of 350k before taxes. He currently has to pay alimony to his ex wife of 120k a year for 7 more years. He has 3 adult children all of whom are college educated and employed.
I have a net worth of 1.2 million dollars. For the past 8 years, because I'm in the USA without proper working documents, I have not had any income or job experience. I do not have a college degree. Once I have my green card, things will change. In this scenario, what is appropriate for alimony in the prenuptial in case of divorce and estate division among his children and I upon his death ? What would be FAIR so that this contract becomes valid?
Unfortunately, that is usually a discussion for the parties involved. A prenuptial agreement is very much about what the parties believe is fair, not some objective standard.
The answers provided in this forum by me and transmitted by users of this forum are not to be considered legally binding in any way, nor is there an intent to form an attorney client relationship. If further information is required, seek competent legal counsel.
I hope you're not trying to prepare one without the advice of counsel. These are very complicated Agreements and unless you understand all the legal requirements to make it legally binding a lay person preparing one could face some serious hurdles when and if it needs to be enforced
These are very complex issues and you should get with your own independent counsel to fully protect your interests and to ensure that any agreement will be enforceable down the road.

There is not enough information to opine. You should consult with an attorney. Prenuptial agreements are full of landmines.
