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
71 Questions Answered
Q. do i have to pay child support?
A: When joint custody is involved and parenting time is equally divided, child support is determined primarily by the financial resources of the parents. Although it’s uncommon for no child support to be mandated, it can happen under certain conditions, such as if the custody is shared 50/50 and both parents have the same financial resources and income levels. Additionally, both parents must equally share the burden of expenses such as health insurance and childcare costs. Speak with a family law attorney to get more detailed information about custody and child support.
Q. Can a husband accuse his wife of kidnapping their daughter if she wants to leave their house with her as a separation?
A: If there are no existing divorce proceedings or custody agreements, the mother must secure consent from the other parent or obtain court approval before relocating. This process can become legally intricate, particularly if the other parent opposes the move. Consult a local family law attorney to get guidance on the most appropriate course of action.
Q. Can I get help in a divorce filing with very little money and 3 children
A: The court will take a detailed look at your financial situation and draw a comparison against your spouse's. This assessment aims to position both parties on an equal footing. If you can't afford a lawyer but your spouse can, the court may level the playing field. They may require your spouse to cover legal fees for both of you. The attorney you hire can estimate the costs that could be awarded either during or post the case. When upfront fees are needed, you may file a Motion for Temporary Relief. Essentially, your spouse could be responsible for your legal fees, minimizing or eliminating any upfront cost for you. Speak with a local attorney to get a more detailed advice based on your circumstances. ... Read More
