Besides, you don't want to do that if he owes fines and the like.

And most banks won't allow an inmate to have an account with them either. Neither will investment brokerages. For now, keep it in your name. If you want him to have the money "in case something happens to you" then ask the bank to set up the account "POD [soon-to-be-husband's name]". POD means Payable on Death, which means that if you die, the monies in the account would have to go directly to him and would bypass probate whether you have a Will or not.

I actually only wanted to have a shared account because immigration can use it as proof of our relationship. I have enough proof from everything else I just thought it might be a plus. Thanks everyone
