As for whether or not the document is correct, I can't really answer that. I can't review it and make determinations as to its particular accuracy before that state court.
What I can say is that nothing in military law makes is wrong. By that, I mean that military law on the issue of the division of military retirement does not dictate any particular result. All it does is grant state courts the right to make determinations on division of military retirement in the same way they have the ability to divide civilian retirements.
There is something called the 10/10 rule, which many mistakenly believe requires a marriage to have last 10 years before division can occur. That is not true. All that rule does is determine when DFAS will pay someone directly. If the marriage hasn't lasted 10 years, then a former spouse can't turn their decree into DFAS for automatic payment. The retiree would then have to send checks each month themselves or set up an allotment. The payments though would still be legally required by the decree and contempt of court charges would be the method of enforcement.
QDRO isn't legally necessary for DFAS, but if the court in question wants one, it's not wrong to have it and as you are not working with DFAS anyway (because the marriage didn't last long enough), the QDRO isn't going to legally offend anyone.
