A: A Consent Order details for the court financial agreements reached amicably in cases such as yours. Even if you do not have any assets to be divided, the order will dismiss any claims you make against each other now or in the future.
You should seek further advice however.
Q: My partner and I are planning on getting married in a couple of months. He has quite a bit of wealth and has asked me to sign a pre-nuptial agreement. If I sign this, is it legally binding if our marriage breaks down?
A: Your partner cannot force you to sign this agreement, it is something to be resolved between you. Presently, pre-nuptial agreements are not legally binding in themselves should a marriage break down, but they are something which in those circumstances a court would give strong consideration to in relation to dealing with financial settlements.
If you are concerned, you should seek more detailed advice as soon as possible.
The advice given here is of a general nature and will not necessarily apply in all circumstances - readers should consult a solicitor
