Jason Stanley

Partner, Altrincham, Chester

With my down to earth and empathetic approach, I ensure that my clients receive clear advice, support and guidance throughout their case. I work with commitment and energy to achieve the best possible outcome, ideally settling out of court. Jason works out of our Altrincham, Chester and Warrington offices


He advises clients in the process of divorce, civil partnerships or unmarried couples who have separated. His specialist area covers substantial matrimonial capital and income disputes. He also represents clients who require his help to draft detailed financial separation and pre-nuptial agreements.

Jason also has a wealth of experience advising clients in relation to general children arrangements, issuing emergency applications with regard to relocation of schools or child protection. Not only does he act for parents in dispute but has also represented grandparents in child access cases. He has also pursued and defended emergency protective applications following domestic abuse.

Jason has also attained accreditation with Resolution, the national family law organisation and specialises in complex financial remedy disputes as well as cohabitation and unmarried couple law.

Training & employment experience

Jason qualified as a solicitor in 2001 having completed his Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in York. Following his qualification, he initially represented clients in a broad range of family law as well as civil disputes that included complex contentious Chancery work, Landlord and Tenant issues, neighbour/boundary disputes and employment law. He successfully established a litigation department at a legal practice in the Fylde coast and was appointed Head of Department before relocating to Manchester where he began to specialise in Family law.


Jason has a down-to-Earth and empathetic manner with clients.  Although he is robust in negotiations and as an advocate in court, he will explore all options for a client, including attempts to reach an out-of-court settlement if possible. He is adept at looking at the bigger picture, as contentious proceedings can be emotionally or financially draining, without compromising on detail.
