Protecting What Matters Most

No legal matter carries greater weight than one that affects your parent-child relationship. When parents divorce or unmarried parents split up, the most sensitive, and often contentious, issues involve the future care and well-being of the children.

At Healy & McCann, PC, in Albany, we handle child custody matters with the utmost care and attention to detail. We will work with you closely to gain an understanding of your family dynamics, so we can guide you to a solution that truly represents what is best for your children.

Child custody is broken down into two general categories:

  • Legal custody: Major decisions over the child's life, including those regarding education, health care and religion.
  • Physical custody: Where the child actually lives and spends most of his or her time.

Our attorneys are adept at helping parents resolve child custody disputes in a manner that does not cause unnecessary stress and acrimony. We understand, however, that a strong stance is sometimes necessary to protect our clients' parental rights and the best interests of their children. We will tailor a strategy uniquely suited to your needs and goals, and what is best for your children.

Parenting Time

Who picks the kids up from school on Friday? Who is doing Halloween? What about birthdays? All of these issues are decided in a parenting time agreement. Such agreements are highly customizable. It is best for parents to work together to make arrangements that help both parents maintain a meaningful role in their child's life.

Our lawyers have extensive experience establishing parenting time agreements and can help you establish legal orders that protect your parent-child bond to the greatest possible extent.
