Lydia Gross’ practice encompasses all aspects of divorce, dissolution of marriage, legal separation, adoption, child custody, and child support matters for unmarried parents. Lydia loves helping people and truly enjoys being a family law attorney because it gives her the opportunity to help people in what for many, is the hardest time of their lives.

Her practice includes the following areas:

  • Dividing complex marital estates, including investment properties, business interests, unusual investments, complicated retirement plans, and separate property issues;
  • Evaluating business and partnership interests for division in divorce;
  • Researching and analyzing records to identify misappropriated or hidden marital assets;
  • Drafting, interpreting, and evaluating the enforceability of prenuptial agreements;
  • Crafting tailored temporary and permanent spousal and child support plans;
  • Allocating parental rights and responsibilities;
  • Issues concerning parental relocation;
  • Custody matters involving psychological expert testimony;
  • Domestic violence matters; and
  • Handling post-decree issues of enforcement and non-disclosed or omitted assets.

In her spare time, she loves to enjoy nature, running, and dancing in her ballet class at Rabbit Run. She spends much of her time helping the homeless animals of Lake County. She also enjoys renovating the “Bailey House,” one of the first homes in Madison, Ohio, which her and her husband Alex purchased. Before becoming an attorney, she interned at the Smithsonian in D.C. and she enjoys being able to bring her historical knowledge to the Northeast Ohio area as a member of the Madison Historical Society. She loves to spend time with her family, especially her son, Brooks.
