About John Laufenberg

No two divorces are alike. Delivering the legal representation you expect will require more than legal expertise and close familiarity with local family law courts. It will require an understanding of your unique circumstances, your personal and financial and goals, and what must be done to secure the futures of your children.

Clients of John Laufenberg benefit from experience that comes from having practiced family law in Greater Sacramento since 1994. John’s experience has earned him several positions of leadership in the legal profession, including past president of the Sacramento County Bar Association.

A hallmark of John’s practice is his commitment to the welfare of children and his skills negotiating issues of custody, support and visitation rights. John’s role as your counselor will include providing emotional support. He will not only ask—but help you answer--difficult questions such as:

  • Should you pursue joint or sole custody?
  • How are you going to divide your parenting time?
  • Will there be visitation rights involved?
  • What will constitute adequate child support?
John's experience is also important in addressing division of property issues, which test the depth and breadth of an attorney’s knowledge. Simple questions that often have complex and surprising answers include:
  • What are a couple’s total assets?
  • Which assets are community property and which are a spouse’s personal property?
  • Does community property include a spouse’s retirement plan?
  • Is there a prenuptial agreement and how will it affect my settlement?
  • If business ownership is involved, what is the business’ value?

You can trust John to identify all property you are entitled to and, when necessary, enlist experts to value it.

Begin returning stability to your life and the lives of your children. Call John at (916) 265-0011 to schedule a consultation. Appointment scheduling is flexible.
