My plan is to stick to the facts about my earnings and assets (I am employed so it is impossible for me to hide anything) and do some adding up on the stbxs income(she does some self employed cash in hand work) and also the value of things she has taken from the house like jewellery that she had from me over the years.
Sven - unless the jewellery and stuff has significant value then it is best left alone. If you start to go down the route of putting a price on everything you have bought during the relationship - you'll end up fighting a very long, pointless and bloody battle - not the best way to start mediation. Gifts are gifts - end of chat. If they have significant value ie over say £1000 and there are several of them then bring them up - or make sure they are listed as assets on your STBX's balance sheet - if were talking about one or two things worth a couple of hundred quid tops they are not worth arguing over - there will be plenty of other things to thrash out that your time and that of the Mediator would be better spent on....
