When it comes to your divorce, you know what outcome you want to achieve. Our job is to educate, counsel, and advise. We will thoroughly explain the different dispute resolution methods to help you decide how your case will be resolved, whether through mediation, collaboration, arbitration, attorney-negotiated settlement, or litigation.

Along the way, we protect your interests in negotiating separation agreements and parenting plans. We offer practical advice on how to minimize legal fees, gather the required financial and personal information, and use your preferred strategy to reach a settlement.

After an initial consultation, you'll have a clearer understanding of the legal process and how you want to proceed. You'll also take home a complimentary folder full of helpful articles, references and legal information that you'll find yourself referring to often. Most of all, you'll be reassured that, with expert guidance, you can make the right decisions for your family.

To schedule an initial consultation, call 734 994-3000 or e-mail us at info@nsssb.com.

    My experience with Lori Buiteweg has been extraordinary! She is by far the best attorney I've ever had, always responsive, professional, and prepared. She has successfully handled my high contentious custody case, which was smoothed by her excellent working terms with court & community professionals. Lori's mastery of the law was essential for our financial resolution, her commitment to her clients renews faith in lawyers, and her kind, respectful approach to me personally got me through.

    Many attorney friends consistently referred me to Monika Sacks for all family law matters. She is thorough, with a mastery and understanding of all issues. She repeatedly secured more for me than expected, protecting my interests even beyond my hopes. Her firm's emphasis on collaborative law led us to a mediated settlement; thus my children were much less scarred by the divorce process. Monika told illustrative stories, making me anxious about hours billed, but communicated vital info well.

    Review for Monika Holzer Sacks on 07/03/18 in Divorce

    Makes unsubstantiated remarks in order to cast doubt and make other parties look bad. Definitely not a lawyer for women. Makes erroneous comments and presents them as being fact based. Unprofessional!

    THIS IS A 3RD PARTY BYSTANDER REVIEW OF ATTORNEY LORI BUITEWEG
    Buiteweg is a lying, cheating, unscrupulous attorney that will say or do anything to win. Her firm holds themselves out to be all about the best interests of the children of divorce, but her actions reflect a ruthless pursuit of victory, no matter the cost. If your conscience permits and you want a ruthless, unscrupulous, unethical attorney who will lie, cheat and violate the law to win, she's a great choice.

    Monika Sacks is an outstanding attorney. She is also a great mentor to less experienced attorneys. I can not say enough about her skills and her amazing work ethic and energy devoted to the practice in many different arenas.

  •             Recently, a new client complained that her 15 year old son does not want to spend time with his father.  The son complains that Dad maligns Mom when they are together.  Yesterday, the client forwarded an email exchange between their son and his dad which son had forwarded to her.  In the email, Dad […]

  • Your lawyer has advised you that your spouse’s anger should subside once the divorce gets underway.  However, you are now in month 5 of the divorce.  You have heard that most cases settle.  You have been to mediation twice.  Yet your spouse seems to be getting more and more angry because you are not giving […]

  •             In Michigan, both parents are required to contribute to the support of their children, unless they are disabled or truly unable to work.  When parents divorce or separate we need to know how much each parent earns or could earn, if working outside the home, and how much time the children expect to spend […]

                Many of my clients own their cars jointly with their spouses. This is a huge liability problem whether you are married or are divorcing.             The greatest source of potential liability for you is your car.  Why?  At what ever weight the vehicle has, when it’s moving at the speed we drive on roads, […]
