Our Compassionate Plymouth Family Law Attorneys Can Help
Family law is one of Attorney Matos’ primary practice areas. We know how unique each family’s needs and goals are, and we always begin with a careful assessment of yours. Your initial consultation is the opportunity to get to know you and discuss your legal options.
Making our services accessible to our local community is what inspired us to open our Plymouth office.

Your family is our priority. We will advocate for your rights no matter how complex your case is.
Our team also supports clients choosing mediation.
This alternative dispute resolution method allows you and your spouse to privately negotiate most aspects of the dissolution of your marriage, from property division to spousal maintenance. You can also reach agreements concerning any minor child you share, but the judge needs to give their approval for your parenting plan, custody, and child support.
DOES MASSACHUSETTS OFFER LEGAL SEPARATION?
Contrary to other states, Massachusetts does not offer legal separation as an option for couples who want to live separately while remaining officially married for financial, religious, or other reasons.
However, the state’s law permits married couples to file for “separate support” if they live independently without dissolving their marriage. This solution helps get a court order on any of the aforementioned family law issues.
