Biography

Pamela Fero moved to South Florida in 1991 when she was hired by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as an Air Traffic Control Specialist. She worked for the FAA as a controller for over 26 years and retired in 2016. Prior to moving to Florida, she lived in Ohio where she learned the value of hard work by working on the family farm.

Ms. Fero has one step-son, three adopted children, one foster child, and two biological children. The children are all unique individuals with their own strengths and weaknesses. Having such a large and diverse family naturally led Ms. Fero to an interest in Family Law and the issues that arise.

Ms. Fero has earned an Associates's Degree in Computer Programming and a Bachelor of Arts in Labor Education. Following graduation, Ms. Fero continued working for the FAA and took classes in arbitration advocacy.

Ms. Fero received her Juris Doctor from Florida International University College of Law in 2014. During her time in law school, Ms. Fero participated in two clinics, the Family and Education Clinic and the Health Law and Policy (HELP) Clinic where she enjoyed helping people with their legal issues. She also was a member of the FIU Law Review from 2012-2013, and an Articles and Comments Editor for the Law Review from 2013-2014.

Legal Answers
Q. Daughter is 16 and pregnant by her 17yr old boyfriend. His parents are threatening to take the child away from her.
A: I'm not licensed in Alabama, so I will not offer any advice other than this: never take legal advice from a police officer - see an attorney. And definitely do not take legal advice from someone saying "this is what the police told me." Especially in domestic situations. Please, take Mr. Oncale up on his offer to speak with you offline (or contact an attorney of your choosing). Your daughter needs you to help her stand up and protect her, and you need someone to help you do that.
Q. I was adopted by father at birth and am getting divorced. Can I take back my birth name instead of my adopted name?
A: I see no reason why you can't. The statutes allow for a person to have their name restored to a former name at the time of a divorce. I've never seen a judge ask for documentation as to the prior name, but I suppose it could happen. (*This answer should not be construed as legal advice and is for informational purposes only.*)
Q. My son deceased, ex-girlfriend now married, her husband adopting my grandchildren. Legally my grandchildren still?
A: Hello. Yes, your grandchildren are still your grandchildren, and they are entitled to some legal benefits. For instance, if you were to die intestate (without a will), they would still be considered your descendants and would be entitled to the same amount of inheritance (if any) as they would have had your son-in-law not adopted them. And, of course, you can leave whatever you'd like to them if you have a will. However, in Florida, grandparents, in general, have next to no rights when it comes to visitation with their grandchildren. That is true whether they have been adopted or not. It will be up to the parents whether they wish to continue visitation. I'm very sorry for the loss of your son.
