Connecticut Domestic Violence Defense Attorney
Unfortunately, men are often treated unfairly when accusations of domestic violence are leveled against them. Many stereotypes and gender biases exist that are systemic. For more information about domestic violence, and how you can protect yourself from false allegations, contact our Connecticut law firm, The Law Office of Victor J. Cavallo.
The Midas Touch-tone
Prompted by the Federal Violence Against Women Act, states have enacted stringent family violence laws and set up family violence courts and police procedures to respond to domestic violence. Family violence tragedies are all too common and police and court intervention help avert further tragedy. However, as these laws and procedures have expanded, so have the their misuse.
On a daily basis, these procedures and courts are used as one-stop-shopping in divorce cases for summary deprivation of a spouse’s liberty, children and property. All it takes is touching 9-1-1 and everything can turn to gold. An exaggerated argument, a carefully crafted skin abrasion, an embellished story, a false claim and no witnesses provide the vengeful spouse the opportunity for instant exclusive possession of the marital home, instant sole custody of children and tactical control of assets; all without a court hearing. When the hearing does take place, often the presumptions are overwhelming, the consequences are criminal and the damage is irreparable.
