Greetings from Plymouth County Register of Probate Matt McDonough


Thanks for visiting the homepage for the Plymouth County Probate & Family Court. There are many different life events that may require legal work within our courts. I created and maintain this website to allow Plymouth County residents easy access to many resources that will assist you as you handle your legal matters in the Probate and Family Court.

Should you have questions regarding court procedures and scheduling that you are unable to answer through our website, please feel free to contact us at our Plymouth office (508)747-6204 or our Brockton location (508)897-5400. My staff and I are here to ensure that your experience in our courts is as efficient and professional as possible.

If you have questions that require legal advice, The Plymouth County Registry offers a unique “Attorney of the Day” program in both our Plymouth and Brockton offices. Every weekday starting at 8:30am you can sign up at our front counters to consult with a highly trained local attorney. We have over 100 local attorneys who donate their expertise and time to assist our customers as they navigate our court system.

We are also proud to offer a “Guardianship Clinic” to meet the needs of individuals caring for family members and other loved ones who have entered the legal processes of Guardianship and Conservatorship. This clinic is staffed on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday afternoons of each month from 1PM to 4PM by local Plymouth County attorneys who specialize in guardianship and conservatorship practice. They can assist you with completing paperwork, answering questions about giving proper notice to interested parties, and complying with annual reporting requirements.
