Family Law


Divorce can be a very difficult time legally, financially and emotionally. During such a crucial time, you need an advocate like Attorney Ortiz who will protect your interests by providing honest and zealous representation. If your prior court orders for visitation, custody, or child support are no longer serving the needs of your family, we can help you file for a modification of those orders. We also assist clients with cases to determine paternity and establish child support. In addition, Attorney Ortiz specializes in Family Court protection from abuse petitions and restraining orders, as well as Rhode Island misdemeanor criminal cases in District Court.
