    About my Practice

    FAMILY WEALTH PLANNING PARTNERS is dedicated to helping divorcing clients, along with their attorneys and mediators, make sound financial decisions for today and into the future.
    The divorce process can be an emotional and intense time. It is imperative to have a good understanding of your finances, including assets, liabilities, income and expenses. The financial decisions you make during this process may be the most important economic decisions of your life. Knowledge and preparation is key for your success.

    Our divorce financial planning expertise and software can determine the short-term and long-term impact of various divorce settlement options to better help you negotiate your financial future.

    Ivy Menchel began her financial services career more than 24 years ago at a premier full-service brokerage firm. She currently works with matrimonial attorneys, divorce mediators and their clients to address the financial issues of divorce and assess their options for fair and equitable settlements. Ivy supports and educates her clients, and their advisors, through the entire divorce process. She is trained in mediation and though she doesn't practice mediation, these skills are utilized in collaborative, litigated and mediated cases. She is a contributing author in the Ebook "Navigating Your Divorce" and has been a guest speaker on television and radio talk shows as well as a presenter at many workshops. Ivy's mission is to empower clients to make sound financial decisions today and in the future for themselves and their families.
