Frederick A. D'Arcangelo
Fred D’Arcangelo concentrates his practice in the area of divorce and family law.
Fred has extensive litigation experience in divorce, child custody, domestic violence, and post-judgment enforcement matters, as well as in the preparation of pre-nuptial agreements. Fred is also a divorce and custody mediator. He completed the Rutgers Law School course on divorce mediation and has successfully mediated many matters. Fred is also trained in the new and growing field of collaborative divorce law, which enables a divorcing couple to resolve all marital issues in a non-confrontational and cost effective manner. In collaborative divorce law, the parties and their attorneys sign a participation agreement, under which they agree not to initiate litigation while they are involved in the collaborative process, and to use professionals on a joint basis to assist in resolution of financial and family issues. This process gives the parties and their attorneys a framework to discuss problems with a view toward resolution, which puts the well-being of the parties and their children in the forefront, and avoids the stress that accompanies lengthy and expensive divorce litigation. Collaborative law techniques can also be used to resolve post-judgment issues.
He has served on the Family Law Committee of the Union County Bar Association, and District XII Ethics Committee of the New Jersey Supreme Court.
