by Monica Balani

Having spent 9+ years working as a paralegal for a leading practitioner of Family Law, I noticed a blaring gap in the suite of services available to trailing spouses contemplating separation. A victim of an acrimonious divorce myself, I wish I knew back then what I know now. My practice is crafted around that very ethos: empowering women through knowledge, providing insights on what to expect and how best to prepare, circumventing unpleasant situations and, in essence, enabling informed decisions.

If you are in a difficult situation with your partner and seeking a legal recourse, come speak to me first. I am not a lawyer and unable to impart legal advice. I am someone who understands the pain and suffering of legal separation only too well. Believe me when I tell you it is traumatic enough without having to grapple with other pressing issues such as Jurisdiction, Child Custody, Maintenance and Division of Assets all on your own. If you get the lawyer selection wrong or opt for an uncapped fee structure, you could be putting yourself at a disadvantage right from the outset. Think of a session with me as Divorce Orientation, albeit based on your circumstances. 

Over the years, I have worked on a number of high profile cases with culturally diverse considerations and have pretty much seen it all.


Initial Assessment

In order to be able to help you, I need to familiarize myself with your situation. Consider this an interview wherein the questions posed will provide a detailed account of your case, facilitating guidance. 


A detailed analysis of your predicament, answers to your questions and an introduction to a legal professional, where deemed fitting and if requested.


Should you require someone to continually update you on the finer rudiments of your evolving strategy, discuss your options and explain event ramifications to you, (as presented by your lawyer), my services can be contracted for the duration of your case.

Meritably: Legal consultant to support with divorce proceedings, child custody and division of asset


I give my very highest recommendation to Monica Balani for anyone seeking advice regarding separation and/or divorce. 


I’m amazed at her insight regarding complex legal issues and grateful for her aggressive yet empathetic approach. She is an ethical, honest and knowledgeable paralegal who guided me during what was one of the most difficult times in my life. I was in the middle of a high-conflict divorce and unplanned custody battle, when I did my research and found Monica. She’s not only excellent at what she does, she truly cared for me and my children and went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and informed with all decisions. 


One of the takeaways I have from my divorce and custody battle is HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HIRE AN EXCEPTIONAL ATTORNEY AND PARALEGAL. I’m so thankful for finding Monica who is very client focused. She delivered excellent outcomes in a very difficult and complex case. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
