• For online resources, you
can turn to AFSA’s website at
www.afsa.org/divorce,
where
you will fnd an abundance of
divorce resources.
• The Family Liaison O ce’s
website at
www.state.gov/m/
dghr/fo/c23129.htm, also
provides lists of FAQs, media-
tors and divorce lawyers;
information on former
spouse benefts; and their
recently revised handbook,
Divorce in the Foreign Ser-
vice
, which you can download
from the site. FLO also has a
crisis management specialist
should you need someone to
answer your questions.
• IQ: Infoquest is a ben-
eft everyone should take
advantage of. The service is
contracted by the depart-
ment and other government
agencies, and provides rec-
ommendations and contact
information for just about
anything related to life.
• MED’s Employee Con-
sultation Service ofers
confdential sessions with a
socialworker.
• At post, your management
o cer, health unit, security
o ce, community liaison
o ce and, depending on the
situation, chief of mission,
may all provide confdential
resources and information.
• And not least of all, State’s
O ce of Retirement is a criti-
cal resource when determin-
ing your separation agree-
ment.
While this may only be
the tip of the iceberg, one
positive development that
seems to be happening more
frequently is divorce celebra-
tions with family and friends.
Wonder if there’s a cake?
