I have my first mediation appointment coming up in about a week. So far stbx and I have not been able to resolve anything on the back and forth w/ our lawyers. Basically he continues to do whatever he wants and is living w/ his girlfriend and insists on access to the house. There are *tons* of other issues, but I will hold off on rehashing them here.
Anyhow - I have no idea what to expect from mediation or even how to prepare. My lawyers send some sort of brief to the mediator. Beyond that idk. I said I'd rather let the mediator go back and forth between room because I am so angry w/ stbx right now that I think I will start yelling when he starts yelling and claiming to be the victim. (He has messed up so many things, said such inappropriate things to the children, lied lied lied on his financial statement, etc. etc. etc.)
Advice would be most welcome - I can't even find much online.
