    Default Marriage to Illegal Alien, and Employment

    My boyfriend and I would like to get married. I am a US citizen, and he came to the country legally; however, his visa is now expired. Unfortunately, we have not been dating very long, though our relationship is strong.
    I am only 19, and a full-time student, and he is 26. We are concerned about proving our legitimacy, especially because some of my family does not approve.
    Also, we are uncertain of his ability to work legally after we are married, since I don't make enough to support us both.

    Would he be able to work legally right away? Is there anything in particular we should worry about regarding my family? They do not know he is not legal...

    After you marry and petition to adjust his status, he can petition for EAD (employment authorization). But you have an issue, given that you don't have any income to speak of - who's going to sponsor him?

    Well, the problem isn't that I don't have an income, as I do live on my own and support myself, but I don't make enough to support us both. He's been working since he came here, and I don't know how that comes into play now. Also, I'm considering a second job to meet the financial obligation.
