Thank you for taking this survey.

I'm gathering research for my Masters thesis on the impact of a mother leaving after the divorce. A substantial amount of research tells of the impact on the children when a father leaves, but very little, if any, speaks to when the mother leaves. Your thoroughness and honesty is greatly appreciated. 

This survey is confidential. No identifiers are received, reviewed, or maintained. Please complete this survey by March 31, 2018.
The results of this survey will be summarized, upon the completion of the  thesis, at 

Please feel free to pass this link to people (siblings, relatives, friends, coworkers) who could complete this survey.
