Greetings. I am currently serving as a Warrant Officer in the US Army. I have over 20 years AFS. I owe 4 years on my ADSO. Is it possible to retire this year? Situations that have made me consider this option:1.) Due to continuous deployment schedule (I deploy 6-9 months yearly) I have not been able to keep my court appointed child custody parenting schedules (I receive 9 visits a year and am able to attend, on average, 3).2.) My children live out of state and it is emotionally, mentally, financially and physically challenging to visit with them while trying to maintain my motivation to serve my country.Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

My divorce decree states, "Former Spouse will receive alimony

My divorce decree states, "Former Spouse will receive alimony until such time as the service member retires and then the Former Spouse will be entitled to her portion of the retirement pay." There is no formula or dollar amount associated and DFAS will not accept this as a viable order because of the lack of stipulation on an amount. As the retiring service member, what should my actions be? I understand what the USFSPA states, but the courts did not define retirement amount.
