Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
United States divorce statistics suggest that 41% percent of first marriages and 60% percent of second marriages will ultimately end in divorce. Mark Springfield, a North Carolina-based Collaborative Divorce expert and producer of the Divorce Without Drama video series, says if divorce is the only answer, then first decide which type of divorce is best for your situation, then choose your lawyer. To help couples understand their divorce options, Springfield, along with a team of psychologists, financial specialists, and other attorneys, developed the Matthews Collaborative-Divorce Screening Instrument (MSCI).
The MSCI is comprised of multiple choice, true-false, and short answer questions that can be administered easily and completed within 20 minutes. The comprehensive and objective results of the MCSI are designed to steer individuals and couples toward a divorce process that is appropriate for their unique circumstances.
Springfield explains the benefits of the Matthews Collaborative-Divorce Screening Instrument, “The MCSI measures the levels of conflict, trust, communication, and other factors to determine the suitability of the Collaborative Divorce method. It also serves as a key indicator as to the feasibility of using additional collaborative professionals in the Collaborative Divorce process such as child specialists, divorce coaches, or financial specialists.”
The MCSI will also be made available to other professionals who often provide advice to individuals and couples considering divorce, including therapists, financial planners, and members of the clergy.
Professionals who are interested in seeing a demonstration or learning more about being trained to administer the MCSI can call Springfield Collaborative Divorce at (919) 573-4848.
