Best Answer

If by "legal alien" you mean a "resident alien" (i.e., a foreigner with permission to live in the United States) and by "alien" you mean any alien, whether legal or illegal (undocumented), then the answer is yes. Generally, there is no citizenship requirement for marriage in the United States. What effect the marriage will have on the Immigration status of the parties involved is another question.

What paperwork would you need to marry your boyfriend who is an illegal alien and you are a US citizen and the only document he has is his birth certificate from Mexico?

He would need to apply and be granted legal permanent status before the couple could be legally married. I don't think you could marry him if he is illegal. Good Luck. You CAN marry an illegal alien. For whatever reason, it's legal to marry an illegal alien. You just need his birth certificate and proof of what state he lived in for the last 30 days prior to marriage.

you can marry but it is no guarantee if they will become legal. You need to understand even if children are involved you are looking at time and money. if your spouse entered the country illegally they will have to return to their homeland at some point of the process (unless the laws change) and then depending on how long they have been in the u.s illegally, they have the option of denying them re-entry for up to 10 years. You need to know this.
