Connecticut Alimony Lawyer
Connecticut divorce lawyer Victor J. Cavallo has spent his legal career protecting the rights of men involved in family law matters, such as alimony disputes. Husbands frequently discover the biases built into the family law system when they need its help. At our Stamford, CT, Family Law firm, we work hard to eliminate the effects of discrimination against men. Contact a family law attorney at The Law Office of Victor J. Cavallo to learn more.
Somehow, the divorce system hasn’t caught up with the gender-equity progress made by women in the last half century. For some inexplicable reason, a metamorphosis occurs during the initial consultation that a divorcing wife has with her prospective attorney.
Self-confident, well-educated, resourceful women are induced into portraying themselves as trembling, financially inept and unemployable victims with their only marketable skill being stay-at-home motherhood. The unconscionable stereotype fuels even more unconscionable claims for large chunks of assets and outrageous sums for interminable alimony. And the client, perhaps fueled by greed, revenge, malice and/or bad advice often goes along with this pretense, notwithstanding that similarly disgraceful portrayal of women in almost any other legal, social or commercial endeavor would land the perpetrator in court, in jail or on the unemployment line.
The Need for Gender Equality
We work hard to level the playing field, protecting husbands against revenge and greed-driven alimony and asset claims. We believe that divorcing parents have a duty to support themselves individually and their children equally. We fight against lawyers’ sexist portrayals of women as victims merely to enhance financial orders and asset allocation. We work hard to obtain a true equitable division of assets in divorce and fairness in alimony.
Fighting for Equal Rights for Men
Our Stamford family law firm fights for equitable sharing of the burdens of divorce. If a spouse needs to complete education or secure training in order to improve earning capacity, we advocate for limited or rehabilitative alimony. We work to include alimony reviews in divorce decrees. We believe that both parties in a divorce are adults and each should be responsible for their own self-support.
