New Trailing Spouse?

If you are a new 'trailing spouse', or 'accompanying partner' as some prefer to be called, you may like to check out this super-useful guide that we stumbled across today on the web, written by the Family Liaison Office (FLO), US Department of State.

The guide is entitled Spouse and Partner Guide to the Foreign Service and it was only just published in February (which explains why we have not seen it before when surfing the FLO website).

Now, you might be neither American nor in a foreign service, but if you are new to the role of trailing spouse, there should be at least something in here that you can find useful, as the PDF document consists of 39 pages - sharing lots of useful advice and links.

Thanks go to the FLO for posting this information onto the 'open' internet, rather than onto just a 'closed' intranet site, so that expat women everywhere can benefit.
