Hi Christy and welcome to the Forum.

At the top of the page is our Handy Tools link; this will give you access to our Expat Guides, these contain articles that may help you plan your journey.

As the spouse of a Dutch citizen, I don't believe you have to go through the Integration system.  This link will take you to the IND website that explains the process and provides a step by step guide at the bottom.

If you have any further specific questions, please come back to us.

Hope this helps.
