It''s best to try and approach it on a ''Needs'' basis. So try to work out if the equity in the FMH is enough to provide a suitable home for each of you. The priority is always that of the children and the person who is the primary carer. Could your wife afford to take on the mortgage and let you have enough from the equity as a deposit for your own place? Is the FMH too big for her requirements? It should be expected that your housing needs are comparable as you will each need bedrooms for the children. What mortgage can you raise on your current income.
The mediator will look at the total financial position including earning capacity and pensions etc. and then what you each ''need''. We were asked to do a monthly expenses schedule of ''before'' and ''after'' which was really helpful.
Good luck with it all.
